Missouri Democrats say they will do everything they can to protect workers' rights.

Monday, that was the topic of discussion at a press conference in Kirksville.

Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber and local Democratic State Representative Candidate Joni Perry, of Kirksville, were on hand to deliver remarks.

They say the party is calling on Republican members of the state legislature to commit to leaving the will of the people in place, and not pursuing any legislation that would reverse the outcome of the vote on Proposition A, better known as right-to-work.

Earlier this month, voters in Missouri decided overwhelmingly to reject right-to-work.

Those in favor of the measure said it would have increased job opportunities and economic growth.

However, those opposed said right-to-work only benefits large corporations.

In Adair County, the measure received a nearly 58 percent "no" vote.

Perry said she was pleased so many Missourian's came out against right-to-work.

"The response that has rolled out from the resounding no on Prop A is people saying we need legislators who listen. When I decided to run for office, it was because I put people over profit."
