Progress Missouri: We will continue to fight right to work
The Missouri House just passed HB 91, a so-called “Right to Work” bill, written by ALEC championed by millionaires and billionaires at the expense of all Missouri workers.
In other states where “Right to Work” has been enacted, wages go down and workplace injuries go up. Even proponents of the legislation admit this.
“I’ve never heard someone say they want fewer wages, less benefits, less health care and retirement," said Rep. Doug Beck (92-St. Louis) yesterday during debate on the House floor.
This bill now goes to the Missouri Senate. Sadly, extremist bills that serve out-of-state, corporate interests are not new in Jefferson City.
We will continue to fight the types of legislation, like “Right to Work” that hurt working Missourians.
