Hunter's annual attack begins
Big business' man in the Missouri House of Representatives, Steve Hunter, R-Joplin, is beginning his annual assault on labor unions. He has filed two anti-union bills. The one I enjoyed the most, HB 1465, would require that unions open their books and publicly disclose information about their finances.
Perhaps Mr. Hunter should do the same and make public just how much he is being paid by the lobbying firm, Associated Industries of Missouri, which he works for as a membership recruiter.
