A state union leader is anticipating debate on the minimum wage and right-to-work in 2016.
AFL-CIO Missouri union head Mike Louis supporters a higher minimum wage, just not all the way to $15.00 an hour.
“I don’t think that we can put ourselves in the same playing field as California or New York, but I think for working people in low-to-medium household incomes…people can’t survive. They can’t raise a family,” Louis says on Missouri Viewpoints.
Louis adds he expects lawmakers to try to pass a union-weakening right-to-work bill. He predicts wages will drop if it becomes law.
