AFP Applauds Governor Greitens for Signing Right-to-Work Bill

By keeping campaign promise, Governor Greitens makes Missouri the 28th right-to-work state

JEFFERSON CITY – Americans for Prosperity – Missouri (AFP-MO) today applauded Governor Eric Greitens for passing right-to-work. Less than a year and a half after right-to-work was vetoed, AFP-MO celebrated the worker freedom victory passed with bipartisan support in the General Assembly.

AFP-MO State Director Jeremy Cady provided the following statement:

“We applaud Governor Greitens for keeping his campaign promise and standing up for all Missouri workers. Right-to-work guarantees a basic freedom – the freedom to work without mandatory union membership. No one should be fired from a job they love – in a place their skills are wanted – simply for refusing to pay a union. At long last workers in Missouri have been granted the basic freedom to work without fear of being fired for not paying a union.

“At the heart of economics is a scientific mystery: How is it that
the pricing system accomplishes the world’s work without
anyone being in charge?
. . . None of us could have invented it, and its operation
depends in no way on anyone’s comprehension or
understanding of it . . .
The pricing system—how is order produced from freedom of
choice?—is a scientific mystery as deep, fundamental and
inspiring as that of the expanding universe or the forces that
bind matter.”
