Missouri House Speaker Pushes For "Right-To-Work"

Missouri lawmakers discuss the possibility of bringing a new issue before voters.
JEFFERSON CITY, MO -- Missouri lawmakers discuss the possibility of bringing a new issue before voters. House Speaker Tim Jones is pushing to make Missouri the 25th "right-to-work" state in the nation. That means non-union workers would not have to pay union representation fees. Jones says this would give workers the freedom to make their own choices, which he says would ultimately encourage job growth.

"Having the right to work, making Missouri the 25th state that allows the ultimate in worker freedom and choice is the way to move our economy forward in a much more aggressive fashion," said Jones.

Legislators say the only way this will pass is if the issue is placed on a ballot, meaning voters will likely decide whether or not Missouri becomes a "right-to-work" state.
