Ohio's top Democratic officeholder is touring the state pushing for a way to soften the blow for workers who lose their job to automation.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown wants a law requiring companies to give workers 100 days advanced notice if they're going to be displaced by new technology, six months of severance pay after that, and on-the-job training for possible advancement.

Brown believes this creates a social contract that demands more respect for the workers.
