State Sen. Will Kraus’ Letter to the Editor explains the need to #defendRTW!
In July 19th’s Kansas City Star:
Union bosses have no shame when it comes to denying workers the freedom to tell a union they do not want to join and have money taken out of their paychecks to help promote big labor’s liberal political agenda. They are currently leading a petition campaign to stop reform in the state before it has the chance to work for Missourians.
Right to work gives workers the freedom to refuse to join a union as a condition of employment.
Union bosses do not like right to work because it requires the unions to be responsive to the members’ needs and not to the wishes of big labor bosses in Washington, D.C. For example, many local union members support the Second Amendment, while labor leaders in Washington, D.C., work to weaken Americans’ right to bear arms.
Missouri would not be the first right to work state, and studies show the reform benefits workers. In fact, they indicate right to work policies lead to faster-growing wages, economic growth, and lower unemployment.
Why would union bosses stand in the way of better wages and economic growth? It’s because right to work empowers the worker and not the union bosses.
