Keep the calls going into 573-751-3222 to let Governor Eric Greitens know we want him to Veto #RightToWork for Less. SB19 and HB91. If you get through, be polite and let him know we are ALSO against the Paycheck Deception bill coming up and any threat to Missouri’s Prevailing Wage. #StayWoke#DemsUnite #Forward. Please share. (The Gov. is apparently pretty hard to reach: http://www.koamtv.com/…/voters-have-trouble-reaching-governors-office#

Speak Out — Call Your Elected Officials

Speak Out! Call Your Elected Officials.

Missouri’s working families and our Unions are under attack in Jefferson City.  The Missouri House made the irresponsible decision to pass Right to Work (for Less) and moved it forward to the Senate; where debate began Monday 1/23/17. Listen now.

This extreme measure hurts workers and job development. In the past 12 months, Missouri has created more jobs than ALL SEVEN of our neighboring states that passed Right to Work.

Please call your Missouri State Senator’s office and ask them to vote NO on Right to Work!  Then call Governor Greitens’ Office (573) 751-3222 and tell him to #VETO Right to Work if it passes the Missouri Senate. Governor Nixon had the courage to VETO this same legislation; standing up for working Missourians. Let’s encourage Governor Greitens to do the same! This bill passed the House with 101 votes so if Governor Greitens choose to VETO this Legislation they would need to make up 8 votes to override his VETO.

Script:

“Hello. I’m ________ from _________. My zip code is __________. 

Please Vote NO (when calling State Senator)…

Please VETO any Right to Work legislation passed by the Missouri House and Senate (when calling Governor Greitens)….

(For Both Calls add)

No Missouri Voter went into the voting booth on November 8th thinking “how can I reduce my paycheck?” Right to Work (for Less) will reduce OUR pay and hurt OUR economy. This has been the result in every Right to Work state in the surrounding area. Information was released earlier this month that our Missouri economy is better in job creation and pay than any surrounding Right to Work State. Facts matter! Please do not hurt our economy and workforce by supporting Right to Work.
