Right to Work

Missouri Republicans Can't Think of Anyone Who Benefits from 'Right to Work' for Less Laws, Either

Missouri Republicans are attempting to pass "right to work" for less legislation and, despite claims that the legislation is "pro-business" and will "help" the state's economy, they can't seem to think of one person or business the law would actually help. The state's speaker of the House, Tim Jones (R), was recently asked at a press conference to name businesses that would benefit from the law. His answer:

AFSCME noticed the speaker's response and created the above image and created a webpage to help expose the admission from Jones that the law doesn't actually help Missouri's businesses. On Facebook, AFSCME posted the image with this caption: "We've created this simple website so you can see if there are any companies in your state that stand to benefit from Right to Work."

Clicking on the link leads you to a humorous site that is definitely laughing at Jones and his extreme allies, not with them.
