Right To Work Is Wrong For Missouri

The Facts About So-Called "Right to Work"

So-Called "Right to Work" is WRONG for Missouri workers

So-Called "Right to Work" = Lower Wages for EVERYONE

The average worker in states with right to work (for less) laws makes 3.2% less per year than workers without these laws, whether they are union or not.

So-Called "Right to Work" endangers jobsite safety, health standards and employment benefits

Both union and non-union workers are less likely to have either health insurance or pensions through their jobs in right to work states. The rate of employer-sponsored health insurance for workers in right-to-work states is 2.6 percentage points lower than in states without these restrictions.

The rate of workplace deaths is 36% higher in right to work states, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

So-Called "Right to Work" is WRONG for Missouri’s businesses

Right to work does NOT improve a state’s business climate.

Right to work is NOT a deciding factor in where businesses locate. executive-survey48843.shtml)

So-Called "Right to Work" is WRONG for Missouri’s economy

"Right to Work" does NOT create jobs. Communities actually lose jobs when wages are lowered by right to work.

"Right to Work" does not improve the employment rate or boost economic growth. Eight of the twelve states with the highest unemployment rate have right to work laws.

"Right to Work" cuts wages and stifles job growth by reducing people’s discretionary income. When people have less discretionary income, they spend less, which in turn, hurts the economy.

In addition to the decreased buying power of those in so-called "Right to Work" states, the poverty rate for all people is 19 percent higher in "Right to Work" states. Seven of the ten poorest states are "Right to Work" states.
