‘Right To Work’ – ‘Mississippi Republicans Would Prohibit Towns From Establishing A Minimum Wage’

Republicans….taking Government from protecting the people to protecting the ‘job creators’.

‘The bill claims that such a law is “necessary to ensure an economic climate conducive to new business development and job growth in the State of Mississippi.”

“Everyone has the ‘right to work’ but we can’t prevent a ‘job creator’ from making more money. Their the important ones”.

‘A bill working its way through the Republican-controlled Mississippi legislature aims to ensure that no local government enacts a mandatory minimum wage or other worker protections’.

‘Mississippi has no statewide minimum wage whatsoever (so it follows the national minimum wage)’.

“No county, board of supervisors of a county, municipality or governing authority of a municipality is authorized to establish a mandatory, minimum living wage rate, minimum number of vacation or sick days, whether paid or unpaid, that would regulate how a private employer pays its employees”.

‘The bill claims that such a law is “necessary to ensure an economic climate conducive to new business development and job growth in the State of Mississippi.”

‘The bill passed the House earlier this month and now awaits action in the Senate’s Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency Committee’.
