    What lawmakers call Payroll Protection has nothing to do with protecting your pay. What it does do is introduce so called “Right to Work” laws in Missouri. These laws are passed for special interest to bring down wages in the state! Does that sound like payroll protection? NO!

    Organized labor has brought us things like paid vacations, weekends off, a minimum wage, a 40-hour work week, overtime pay, and much more. We are all better when everyone is represented at the table. I strongly support our brothers and sisters in organized labor and our service unions.

    I believe that everyone should have the right to work, whether they are union members or not. High union wages and benefits are killing jobs in America and companies have been leaving for decades to countries where workers will work for a fraction of what the unions demand. Union wages killed Detroit and have made our public schools the most expensive in the world while education levels are low
