The only people that will be helped by the right to work bill are greedy business owners and the prostitutes in the legislature that do their bidding. Regular citizens, whether Union or not, will see their wages decline. If you think different, just look at Oklahoma and Kansas.

That logic is wrong, besides being ill moral.

With RTW we can attract MAJOR industry, the kind President Trump is bringing back to the US!!
Those skilled and specialized jobs are double the pay we're stuck in now.Simply as that.( My personal favorite would be the gun manufacturers. We are already big in machine tools)

Harvey,

Taft-Hartley Act was the original RTW law, this bullshit is the right to Freeload law. The only thing this law does is give somebody the right to work in a union and NOT pay dues. Oklahoma lost 50,000 jobs going right to work and average wages decreased. Other states like Kansas, Texas, and about 25 others offer to work their residents for less money because ofright to work laws. Why would they want to come to Missouri, where they would be dealing with illiterate business owners such as yourself? Screw the people is the legislature's motto, RTW, freaking Driver's licenses invalid for flying commercially, concealed carry for any moron over 18 without a felony conviction with no gun safety classes or education. Come to think of it, you are sufficiently mentally impaired to be Speaker of the House.

What? No comments on her weight? Oh, I see, she's a Democrat. Until I watched the video, I thought Rep. Long had bought a toupee.

So Harvey, you would hope to attract additional gun manufacturing to Missouri, an already over saturated market. How many guns do you suggest we all own? Is twenty enough, or is twenty-one too many? Somehow you seem to think that America is the only market that businesses can sell into and I tell you straight out, those jobs are not coming out. Why would anyone put up with the American clowns when they can make every bit as much profit by simply marketing into the growing markets of China, India and Africa. The one thing that gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling is that it is going to cost you people a lot more money to maintain your current lifestyle when all of Trump's tariffs are put into place. Maybe if you had paid a bit more attention in college, you would have been exposed to a concept called the Law of Diminishing Returns.

@ "Concerned citizen"

My pungent remarks are based on people that try to deceive others like yourself and Harvey. This law won't break unions, but it will reduce wages, just like it does to you in the non-union side as well. That is a fact. If you were so concerned, you would know your history of the Taft-Hartley Act, you would know your history of how your 40 hour week came to be as a result of unions. But concerned citizens with no knowledge of history are doomed to repeat it. Technologies haven't made robots with trades men's knowledge, that can perform these functions, you futuristic not so genius, nor will all the variables be able to be programmed. Your rant is ignorance.
