JOPLIN, MO.--- Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder makes a stop in Joplin. He spoke to Joplin Rotary members today about jobs and Missouri's economy. Kinder focused on what he says is a key reform, passing a law to make Missouri a "Right to Work" state. He adds Missouri is losing economic activity to neighboring states that are Right to Work, and being a Right to Work state would make Missouri more competitive.
"These states that are Right to Work states are growing faster than Missouri. Kansas is stealing our jobs in Kansas City, this is the way to go forward, to move forward with the freedom to work and give working families a choice," said Peter Kinder, Missouri Lt. Governor.
Kinder noted that six out of the eight states that border Missouri are Right to Work states.
