    That is exactly what will happen. Just another way Republicans can try to not only defund and starve our public services but now also starve unions of any funds. Nothing like a good old fashion oligarchy.

    Especially when they work in their home, caring for a loved one.

    This is a win for constitutional rights but a big setback for unions. It looks like "fair share fees" are, by their very nature, unconstitutional.
    Fair share fees are still very much legal what was decided was a narrow reversal of the unique example in Illinois.

    "The court held on a 5-4 vote that the free speech and free association rights of the workers were violated but the scope of the ruling was limited because the justices decided not to upend a decades-old practice that lets public-sector unions collect money from workers who do not want union representation."

    Ah, yes, liberals love forcing their views on others and choosing what's good for them. Freedom is fine as long as you believe as they do.

    Neither of you have a clue what the case was about. Do you?

    What does forced Union dues have to do with " Public Services "?

    Both decisions were 5-4, I think, and Justice Alito wrote both majority opinions.
