St. Louis University Hospital worker: “This law will drive down wages and benefits even further in Missouri.”
Caprice Nevils, SEIU Healthcare Missouri Executive Board Member and Care Partner at St. Louis University Hospital, released the following statement today regarding Gov. Eric Greitens’ decision to sign so-called right to work legislation:
“It’s a sad day for Missouri’s working families. Governor Greitens claims to be committed to growing our state’s economy, but this law will drive down wages and benefits even further in Missouri. It’s wrong. We should be working together to build an economy that works for everyone, but this only helps a small group of special interest donors.”
