Teachers’ unions use children as bargaining chips, intimidating legislatures into giving them endless political power. So what do parents and teachers think of them when they can be honest?
Two Minnesotans will receive union dues filched without their consent thanks to a Supreme Court decision this year that said no American may be forced to pay unions as a condition of government employment.
Every state is now essentially a right to work state. It’s not an overstatement to say this ruling is a death knell for unions as we know them, and will dramatically change Democratic politics.
