We Are MO launches first ad to expose motivation behind Proposition A (RTW): Lowering Missouri wages

Jefferson City, Missouri – We Are MO launched a statewide television ad last week exposing the hard truth behind Proposition A: it will lower Missouri wages and expand the pay gap between CEOs and the average worker.

We Are MO is a coalition of families, workers and small business owners that gathered over 310,000 signatures in every Missouri congressional district to place Proposition A, a repeal of Missouri’s so-called “right-to-work” law, on the August ballot.

“Missourians need to know that Proposition A will lower wages and benefits for Missouri families, while expanding the gap between wealthy CEOs and the average worker,” said Erin Schrimpf, We Are MO spokesperson. “Proposition A is not what it seems and these ads expose its threat to lower wages and cost us jobs. Missourians who want to protect their pay need to show up at the polls on Aug. 7 and vote no on Proposition A.”

The ad, which can be viewed on the Labor Tribune website at www.labortribune.com, features a worker from Oklahoma talking about losing his job of 36 years after that state passed a similar “right-to-work” measure. Since then, Oklahoma has lost tens of thousands of jobs and wages have decreased.
