Missouri Legislature is taking advantage of this conservative majority by going after labor unions. Last week, Missouri Senate enacted their own version of a Right-To-Work bill following a House bill that was approved last week. Today, the House Committee for Economic Development met to discuss abolishing Prevailing Wages which would allow companies to set their own costs for labor workers.
Currently, they are to adhere to a set wage established by each county and this is all in an effort to benefit both small and large companies, as conservatives are obviously in support of a smaller presence of government in corporations.
It was an issue that Governor Greitens was originally passionate about, as well as Right-To-Work, and intends to make it a priority. In all likelihood, with a republican majority in the legislative and executive branches, labor workers will see a more competitive pay rate sometime in the near-future.
