Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, which overturned a prior case that allowed public-sector unions to charge non-union members “agency fees.”
“Today’s decision is a victory for American workers and our natural right to keep what we earn,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “As a result of the Supreme Court’s ruling, the state will no longer be able to take money from a worker’s paycheck for political organizations without the individual’s consent.
“For far too long, unions have forced workers like Janus to subsidize far-left political activities with which he disagreed. The ruling today puts an end to that corrupt, tyrannical practice and reaffirms one of the core tenets of our democratic system.”
