A group of right-wing politicians in Jefferson City, instead of focusing on putting Missourians back to work, wants to push through harmful attacks on workers—including so-called "right to work" and paycheck deception measures.
In states that have passed so-called "right to work" laws, wages are lower and worker injuries are more common. And contrary to what you may have heard, those states do not have lower unemployment rates than free bargaining states like Missouri.
Big corporations think they matter more than you do. From the Citizens United decision to "corporate personhood" they are grabbing more power-at the cost of citizen power. Across the country, corporate-funded state legislators are rushing to push through bills that would limit your right to vote.
Enough is enough. Tell our state legislators that it's us they need to be looking out for-not corporations.
Thanks to your help, we were able to call on Congress to pass a clean two-month extension of unemployment insurance (UI) benefits in December. This meant that families didn’t have to worry about how they were going to keep a roof over their head and put food on the table during the holidays.
