As long as Missouri has a democratic governor we're safe from right to work. I don't think the repub majorities are big enough to overturn a veto.

Why would anybody want a "right to work for less pay" state unless your a billionaire. That's just stupid. Do some research. The Average pay scale falls dramatically on workers when a state adopts a right to work for less pay stance. I kinda like making more money.
Unless you have hundreds of employees, supporting right to work is dumb.

Actually, you are the one that needs to do some research. Private sector employment as measured by the Bureau of Economic Analysis grew by 12.5 % in Right to Work states as compared to 8.8 % in New York, a non RTW state, over the past decade.

Households in RTW states have nearly $4,300 more in purchasing power than non RTW states (study by Barry Poulson of University of Colorado). Unions drive up the cost of other products and services with their hidden costs of doing business.

When right to work is explained in straightforward terms, nearly 80 % of Americans support the principle of RTW. It gives employees more freedom to excel at their job, does not force them to pay union dues and support political candidates they oppose, and protects the employers from the demands of the union bosses by weakening their power. All of this info I found in the New York Post (12/12/12). Where did you find your info?

Unions had their place at one time, but those days are long gone. I've never understood why any hard-working, put forth the extra effort, employee would want to be stymied by union contracts that hold them back from better pay or positions. Seems union contracts nowadays generally benefit the slackers who don't want to work any harder than they have to.

Plus the higher ups in the unions who live a lavish lifestyle at the union workers expanse.

If it wasn't for the unions everybody would be making minimum wage and no benefits. You non union bastards reap the benefits from the unions bargaining power and pay nothing. You let the unions battle to get better pay and benefits while you put them down and then you get those same wages. You take those unions away and see wages not go up with the cost of living. I remember when noranda moved into the area with there union, wages were just barely minimum then the rest of the big companies had to increase their pay with benefits or have to fight the unions. I got two and three raises a year til we got up to their standard. Y'all want union wages but dont want to pay the dues. Yea you will get more jobs but they will only pay 9 or 10 dollars an hour. No benefits either! That's poverty!! You better support your local union!

Right to work states are concentrated in the south. Laborers in southern states that think they can get a better deal from their employer than union representation remind me of Civil War era poor, non slave owning, reb farmers who ended up fighting and dying for rich slave owners. What the hell did "states right" mean to a slaveless farmer?

Nothing. The poor ignorant farmers were brainwashed into believing that preserving the rights and privileges of rich slave owners was all about honor and courage and regional.pride but in the end it was really about the poor dying for the rich.

The southern brainwashing continues and is still quite successfull.

Yea because the unions have already gotten all of those things for you! Before unions there was low wages and no benefits! All right to work does is let you cheap azz people reap the benefits of the union without paying dues! If the unions completely left the state all your wages and benefits would stop or slow down to a crawl. Big business don't care about you the worker, they care about profits!! 5296

With the election back in November, the Republican party gained super majorities in both the Missouri House and Senate. If all Rep. members vote to override the governor, they can do so without a single Democrat voting with them. This is the first time in over 25 years, I believe, that the Republicans have had Super majorities in BOTH chambers.
