Americans for Prosperity to hold Right-to-Work rally
On Wednesday September 16th, Americans for Prosperity Missouri will host a rally in support of worker's rights for activists who have battled hard to bring Right-to-Work to the state. Activists will begin arriving at 9:30 AM and will stay through the veto-override session. AFP has been on the front lines of the battle to bring worker freedom to the Show Me State.
In preparation for the rally and vote, AFP Missouri State Director, Patrick Werner released the following statement:
"This is about fairness in the workplace and jobs for Missouri workers. The people of Missouri have spoken loud and clear that they support Right-to-Work laws, and their voices must be heard in order for Missouri to see the growth it badly needs. When Right-to-Work becomes a reality in Missouri, no worker will lose their job just for choosing not to join a union, and the economy will see the same jobs boom that 25 other states already enjoy. It's time for our lawmakers to do the right thing and override the Governor's partisan veto on September 16th. The time is now to put Missouri back on the path to prosperity."
