ACTION ALERT – Call Eric Greitens and ask him to veto anti-worker legislation

In the last week of legislative session, Missouri Republicans pushed through two extreme pieces of anti-worker legislation.

The first is Senate Bill 43, which we’ve told you about before. Senate Bill 43 would make it harder for employees who face discrimination to hold others accountable. That’s unacceptable — and we need to make sure the Governor knows Missourians across the state are paying attention. If Eric Greitens signs SB 43, he will gut protections for employees who’ve been discriminated against based on their age, ancestry, color, disability, sex, religion, race or nation of origin.

The second is House Bills 1194 & 1193. Within the last hours of the legislative session, Missouri Republicans vindictively pushed through a slash of the Minimum Wage that will take effect in August of 2017. If Eric Greitens signs this legislation, workers in St. Louis who are working hard to make ends meet will see their wages cut from $10 an hour to $7.70 an hour, all because Republican politicians in Jefferson City decided to slash their wages for political points. That’s wrong and the Governor should stand up for working Missourians.

Call Governor Greitens and tell him to VETO SB 43 and House Bills 1194 & 1193 – (573) 751-3222


In solidarity,

Stephen Webber

Chair, Missouri Democratic Party
