Mississippi Call Center Bill Signed into Law!

This week, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) signed the bipartisan Incentives Transparency for a Prosperous Mississippi Act into law. This bill, which was supported by CWA members, will protect call center workers across the state by denying state grants, loans, and tax breaks to companies who move taxpayer-funded Mississippi call center jobs out of the country.

"We applaud the Mississippi state legislature and lawmakers like Senator Juan Barnett, who led the charge in getting the Incentives Transparency for a Prosperous Mississippi Act passed, for this tremendous accomplishment for state workers and taxpayers," said CWA Local 3509 President Mike Hodges. "This legislation will continue a wave of bipartisan support for standing up to companies and keeping good jobs from being shipped overseas."
