WFI Commends Missouri For Becoming 28th Right-To-Work State
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to Missouri Governor Eric Greitens’s signing of right-to-work legislation into law:
“With the stroke of Governor Greitens’s pen, Missouri became the 28th state in the nation to enact right-to-work – marking the first time in U.S. history that more than half of the nation’s workforce lives in states with this crucial freedom. We are thrilled to see the Show-Me State join many of its neighbors in freeing their workforce from mandatory union dues and putting the power back in the hands of Missouri workers. We firmly believe that Missourians, and indeed all Americans, should be able to negotiate freely with their employer and not rely on union bosses who advocate policies contrary to their interests. We applaud Governor Greitens and the Missouri legislature for their leadership on this issue.”
