Today, Governor Jay Nixon stood with Missouri working families and our middle class by vetoing House Bill 116, the so-called "Right to Work" bill. The Jackson County Democrats commend Governor Nixon for standing up for Missouri's middle class by vetoing this bill that would lower wages and hurt Missouri's economy.
