SHOW-ME THE DOUBLE-EDGED MISSOURI RIGHT-TO-WORK VOTE!!!
As usual, intense debate and political gamesmanship in Missouri don't amount to much . . .
STL Post-Dispatch: Both sides claim victory on 'right to work' vote in Missouri House
Deets on how this bill doesn't become a law . ..
"The Missouri House gave on Wednesday initial approval to a measure prohibiting employers from requiring workers to pay fees to a labor organization as a condition of employment.
But that’s not enough to move the bill supporters call “right to work” to the state Senate.
The close vote would not be enough for the House to pass the measure, which would place it on the August 2014 ballot. To pass a bill, a constitutional majority of 82 representatives is needed. The vote was 78 to 68."
So, union dues are safe for now but the GOP did a nice job scaring just about every organized labor enthusiast in the four state area.
