April 1, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President and Missouri native Nathan Mehrens today in the following statement urged passage of right to work bill HB 1770:
“Legislators must not be intimidated by those who would see right to work defeated. Now is the time to stand firm for worker choice. Nobody should be forced to join a union just to make a living in the profession of their choice.
“The Missouri House should pass HB 1770 that will give workers the choice of whether or not they want to pay union dues. This all boils down to individual choice, and whether the state of Missouri is going to respect the right of the freedom of association.
“Missouri should be joining states like Indiana and Michigan in taking the lead to push back against union excesses, and restore the freedom of choice to its citizens to decide for themselves who they associate with.”
