Missouri Teamsters from across the state rally against RTW at the Capitol.

Well over 3,000 workers in Jefferson City rallied against right-to-work and paycheck deception bills before the Missouri Legislature.

 Secretary of State Jason Kander looked out at the huge crowd and said he felt like the cavalry arrived.

Gov. Jay Nixon, who vetoed a right-to-work-for-less bill last year, spoke to the crowd. He said, if a right-to-work bill reaches his desk he'll veto it again. And if it's put on the ballot, he pledged to stand with union to beat it again.

 "Instead of putting forth bills that support the middle class, some here in the Missouri Legislature are putting forth bills to destroy it," Nixon said.

Our Teamster brother Clint Zweifel, Missouri state treasurer, also spoke. He described the advantages of unions.

Having a union is about opening up a door of opportunity for all of us. Having a union gives you a voice at work and it gives you a voice in our larger economy. Having a union makes sure people who build a community can afford to live in a community...Having a union means you're optimistic about your future because you have a voice.

Zweifel said, unions let parents spend time coaching soccer teams or leading scout troops instead of taking two jobs just to make ends meet.
