Episode 33: Do union workers still have 1st Amendment rights?

Free to Offend Episode 3 | Guest: Mark Janus, Senior Fellow at the Liberty Justice Center

In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court made a groundbreaking decision in support of First Amendment rights: It ruled that government-sector unions are not allowed to force public-sector workers into paying dues or “agency fees” against their will.

Mark Janus was the government sector employee who stood up to one of the nation’s largest and most powerful public-sector unions and brought the lawsuit. His assertion was simple: No union should be able to force workers to financially support organizations, causes or political activity with which they disagree.

Mark joined the program this week to talk about how his groundbreaking court case unfolded—and what’s next for ensuring the freedom of workers across the nation.
