SCOTUS Strikes Down Forced Union Payments

In a 5-4 split,  the US Supreme Court reversed a decades old decision that allowed public sector unions to force employees to contribute union dues.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that government workers can’t be forced to contribute to labor unions that represent them in collective bargaining, dealing a serious financial blow to organized labor. 
The court’s conservative majority scrapped a 41-year-old decision that had allowed states to require that public employees pay some fees to unions that represent them, even if the workers choose not to join. 
The 5-4 decision fulfills a longtime wish of conservatives to get rid of the so-called fair share fees that non-members pay to unions in roughly two dozen states. Organized labor is a key Democratic constituency.
The potential ramifications for this decision are tremendous. Union dues are a stable, reliable source of income for many liberal institutions. Filling this gap will take a concerted, coordinated effort to find ways to rip $$$ from the paychecks of millions of Americans.

  •  The DNC will be forced to seek other ways by which they can force unwilling victims to contribute to their political coffers. A possible strategy includes the unionization of the dead. This is consistent with other DNC efforts as the dead are most likely to vote Democratic.
  • The Teachers Unions may have to actually start considering ways to educate their students rather than fighting merit pay initiatives and attempts to limit tenure for incompetent educators. 
  • Service Employees International Union (SEIU) thugs will be forced to curb beatings as a way of controlling union voting and other forms of union discourse. Lawyers' fees may be limited to only employee rape, embezzlement, theft and fraud arrests. Legal representation for simple and aggravated assault charges may be financially out of bounds for the foreseeable future.
