Voters Across Missouri Demand Their Senators Oppose Paycheck Deception and So-Called “Right to Work” Legislation
(Jefferson City, MO) – Citizens across the state wrote and delivered letters to state senators this weekend urging their leaders to stand up for Missouri’s middle class by opposing so-called “right to work” and paycheck deception legislation.
“These tired attacks on working families are just wrong.” said Mike Melson, an auto worker from Wentzville, Missouri. “Divisive bills like ‘right to work’ and paycheck deception are all about politics — not economics. Our leaders in Jefferson City should be working to create jobs and move Missouri’s economy forward, not focusing on political paybacks.”
“At a time when the economy continues to struggle to recover and many families are still waiting for employment to pick up, Missourians need more economic security, not less,” said Diana Arends, of Independence, former steelworker and member of Jobs with Justice.
