Right to Work vs. Paycheck Protection in Mo.
(Jefferson City, Mo.)--Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones says he doesn’t think Right to Work legislation has enough support in the Legislature to pass without the backing of the governor, but he does think Paycheck Protection can make it through.
That would force unions to seek approval from their members every year before the dues could be used for political purposes. Springfield state Representative Eric Burlison has filed a paycheck protection bill for the 2013 session. He says he plans to file a right-to-work bill as well, saying both bills empower the employee, giving choices back to the worker. The Republican says that will help bring jobs back to the state.
