Nixon: "I don't think that coming after working people is how you build an economy"

Just as ALEC-inspired legislation makes its way on to the Missouri Senate's calendar, Governor Nixon calls these bills out for what they are-- attacks on workers.

" I have not found that folks who think you're going to add jobs by taking away the right of folks to vote and to organize, it just hasn't been true.


I don't think that coming after working people is how you build an economy."

And he's right. So-called 'right to work' would lower wages for all Missourians.
