Supreme Court Hits Labor Unions (and Democrats) in the Pocket

Never Trumpers proven wrong yet again

Published

on

The Supreme Court made a ruling Wednesday that will significantly hinder the ability of organized labor unions to collect money from their members.

“States and public-sector unions may no longer extract agency fees from nonconsenting employees,” Justice Samuel Alito said in his majority opinion.

Public sector employees will no longer be required to pay dues to local unions that represent them. Today’s ruling overturns a 40-year-old Supreme Court decision that previously allowed states to force employees in unionized jobs to pay union dues, even if the employee chose not to join the union. Around 20 states had adopted the policy

“More than half the states already have right-to-work laws banning mandatory fees, but most members of public-employee unions are concentrated in states that don’t, including California, New York, and Illinois,” according to AP.

President Donald J. Trump weighed in almost immediately after the ruling, providing a practical explanation of what the decision means.

“Supreme Court rules in favor of non-union workers who are now, as an example, able to support a candidate of his or her choice without having those who control the Union deciding for them,” he said. “Big loss for the coffers of the Democrats!”

Historically, unions are some of the most powerful lobbyists and financial supporters on behalf of Democrats.

A socialist candidate for U.S. Congress from New York looked foolish during a PBS interview in which she was forced to admit that she is clueless regarding the conflict between Arabs and Israelis.

“I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition,” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”

Kudos to the interviewer, who continued to push regarding Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “occupation of Palestine,” one rarely used outside of small circles of white liberals on college campuses.

“Oh, um… I think what I meant is, like, the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas, in places where, um, Palestinians are experiencing, um, difficulty and access to their housing and homes,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

When asked to expound a bit more, and Ocasio-Cortez threw in the towel.

“Yeah, I think I’d also just… I’m not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” she said.

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez ended the cringeworthy segment back where she started, with the general policy proposal of a “two state solution” to the conflict.

With her lack of expertise, she should fit right in in Congress.
