Club for Growth Applauds SCOTUS Decision Affirming Individual’s Right to Keep What He Earns

Rachael Slobodien - June 27th, 2018

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.”
