Mo. Paycheck Deception Aims to Silence Workers

Corporate-backed and extremist Missouri lawmakers are continuing their attacks on workers with hearings on a paycheck deception bill. In front of a Senate committee this morning, according to AFSCME Council 72, which is tweeting the hearing, witnesses told lawmakers the bill is part of a nationally driven agenda to “silence workers.”


The hearing moves to the Senate side at 2:30 p.m. EDT, and for updates you also can follow @WeAreMissouri, @ProgressMO, @MOAFSCME, @MOAFLCIO@MOJwJ, @WorkingMissouri and @cathysherwin.

The paycheck deception law proposed in Missouri would create burdensome restrictions that interfere with union members’ rights to participate in the political and legislative process. These laws also weaken the ability of working people to advance working family issues such as legislation that would create jobs and stop job outsourcing.

Call your representative now at 888-907-9711 and urge him or her to oppose paycheck deception.
