Petition - End the war on Kansas workers and unions.

I posted this in GD for greater visibility to Kansas DUers. Kansas needs all of the help it can get.

Governor Sam Brownback and republicans in the Kansas legislature are seeking to put an end to all unions in Kansas. HB 2023 and SB 31 are a direct attempt at silencing the hard working men and women of Kansas. As the Kansas Chamber of Commerce lobbyist, Eric Stafford freely admitted in committee "I need these bills to pass so that we can get rid of public sector unions", it's time to put an end to the war on Kansas workers.


Petition is at: http://signon.org/sign/end-the-war-on-kansas?source=mo&id=61889-5687041-oTzjXUx

5. It's right-to-work anyway

and unfortunately that part is legal.

RTW doesn't ban unions, but it makes them so weak by cutting off the dues money that they are useless.

Banning something that isn't very effective in the state is just overkill.

6. The KS regime wants total repression and adherence to the "Koch Brothers - Brownback" regime. And KS

voters can't seem to comprehend what's going on ... they are well on their way to making KS a theocratic dystopia.
