ALEC Model Legislation Debated While ALEC Reception Held One Block Away

So-called "Right to Work" legislation is drafted and pushed by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council

Here is one example from 2015, of a House Bill side-by-side with an ALEC model version.

This is nothing new, and "Right to Work" bills aren't the only anti-worker issues national groups are pushing in Jefferson City these days. We're only three weeks in to the 2017 Legislative Session, and already there have been hearings for anti-prevailing wage, paycheck deception and both Senate and House "Right to Work" measures.

These bills are moving fast too.

The Senate is already debating SB 19, their version of "Right to Work"

Opposition to ALEC's so-called "Right to Work" is strongly nonpartisan.

Why? Because it hurts Missouri workers, and helps only the CEOs, out-of-state corporations, and millionaires and billionaires that push it.

Furthermore, in states that have passed "Right to Work" legislation, wages have fallen and workplace injuries have risen. Even Missouri legislators that sponsor these bills admit this.

So today, while the Missouri Senate debates SB 19, ALEC members have a reception to get ready for

It would be a real shame if Senator Ed Emery and every other Missouri legislator in the pocket of out-of-state corporations couldn't make it to their ALEC Membership Reception tonight.

You can't make this stuff up.
