Supreme Court ruling strikes down compulsory public union membership

Washington ExaminerThe Supreme Court delivered a major blow to public-sector unions Wednesday, ruling that they cannot force government workers to join or financially support them.

The 5-4 ruling in the case, called, Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, by the court's conservative wing overturned a four-decade-old precedent and affects about seven million people.

Union leaders expect the ruling to result in major membership losses and drained treasuries as workers, who previously had no choice, start opting out of being involved with unions.

This drove the Left nuts when Scott Walker did it in Wisconsin. Now it's nationwide and federal.
