Missourians: Help needed TODAY to stop the latest attack on workers

(UPDATES to correct graf 4 with new working number to MO Senate, bill number.)

A Missouri House committee has just voted out a bill to make it illegal for an employer to honor an employee’s voluntary request to have their union dues deducted from their paycheck.

It has one purpose and one purpose only – to punish workers and weaken the unions that represent them.

The Senate is expected to vote on it this afternoon.

Missourians, you can help stop this attack on workers by calling 573-751-2000 and urging your senator to vote no on SB 29. Or you can send an email by clicking here.

Sponsor Rick Burlison is (surprise) a member of ALEC, the billionaire-backed dating service for corporations and state lawmakers.

This is just one of the many attacks on workers brought to Missouri by corporations (via ALEC) and billionaires like the Benedict Arnold Koch brothers and Ponzi scheme Amway heir Dick DeVos. Missouri's home-grown loony billionaires, members of the Humphreys family, are a big part of the anti-worker attack machine.
