Supreme Court Could End Forced Unionization For State Workers

Public sector workers on the state level could be granted the choice of whether or not to join a union if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to hear an upcoming case.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide by the end of April whether to hear Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. The case argues public sector workers, such as teachers, should have the right to decide whether they want to join a union or pay union fees. This would include agency fees, which require non-union workers to pay for collective bargaining costs.

The case was brought by 10 California teachers with support from the Center for Individual Rights.

Patrick J. Wright, director at the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, argued that workers, including government workers, should have the right to decide whether they want to join a union.

“You should not have to pay agency fees,” Wright told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Public sector workers should have right-to-work as a matter of constitutional law.”

Wright also argued against claims that such a ruling would destroy unions. Looking at states like Michigan, which passed a right-to-work law, he noted a high percentage of workers still are becoming union members. Wright said that the problem is simply giving workers the choice.

Center for Individual Rights.   Where do  all of these organizations come from? It sounds like another liberal type of organization for someones rights. We should have a tea party right  organization too. And start protesting everything the democrats do.

For some reason, AFL-CIO and other unions keep placing their propaganda on my FaceBook page.  I have so much fun ripping into them, that I am sure they regret darkening my page with their lies.  I suspect that they delete my comments as soon as they come to their attention but not before others see the truth!  LOL

Frank, you got it!!  I saw them at the School Board Meetings in California, and thought I was in the middle of "The Godfather".     They are rough, real Tony Soprano types.     Even looked like Guys on the Program, dressed the part.

In California, when I lived out there, five years ago, we were trying to get this on the Ballot.  If you do not belong to a Union in Ca., you do not work.    Then, they take their "Fees" out of your Pay Check, before you ever see it, and send it directly to the Liberal Administration.      I do not have as much Faith as I used to, in the decisions of The Supreme Court, sadly.    "Right To Work" States all have better employment records, and more prosperity.

Jo, no liberal will ever publicly admit to the real employment numbers when compared between union and "Right To Work" states.  They have to ignore them so they can go on living the lie, because living a lie is easier for them than acknowledging the truth.

One thing of note, all Unions have an ancestry of Socialism and Communism, the creators of the Progressive Movement, that today is represented by the Progressive party, those Bastards led by the Chief Bastard Obama, that are destroying America today.

I have often wondered, who was the political idiot that allowed forced unionization for public jobs (i.e. teachers, police, etc.) in the first place?  That is just a bad deal all the way around.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
