I support unions because Unions fight for the working class. Unions have been under attack by our current Republican led majority in the Missouri House. The governor accepted money from a major privately owned employer based out of Missouri to put in place the Right to Work which is anti-union and anti-worker legislature. Unions have been integral to creating protections for workers.
Right to work is is an effort to prevent Unions for fighting for higher wages, better work standards and keeping our employers in check. Most Missourians support unions but our conservative majority in Missouri does not, they support big business donors.
Weekends – 5 day work weeks – employer provided health insurance – FMLA – the end of child labor – Workers Compensation – Minimum Wage – Sick Leave – Lunch Breaks – Unemployment Insurance – Pensions – Paid Vacation – Workplace Safety Standards and Regulations – Military Leave – Sexual Harassment Laws – Maternity Leave – The Right to Strike – Public Education and so many other progressive rights for employees. Thanks to Unions, we have these benefits and more.
I stand proudly with Unions and support the rights of local workers. Unions are there to protect us and the Right to Work is wrong for Missouri.
