Speaker Tim Jones’ #1 priority for 2014 is passing the American Legislative Exchange Council’s so-called ‘right to work’ laws that would hurt Missouri’s entire middle class. Simply put, ALEC’s proposal would mean lower wages and a lower quality of life for the working people of Missouri -- unionized or not.
House Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Chairman Bill Lanthas been an ALEC member. Today, he distributed an amendment to HB34, an anti-prevailing wage bill by birther Casey Guersey, that would attach ALEC's entire 'right-to-work' proposal to the bill.
