States Are Ignoring Janus Decision

Too many states are flouting the Janus decision requiring the consent of union workers to pay dues
By threats, intimidations, convoluted hoops to leave they are forcing union members to sue
The cash cow for Blue members has been put directly at risk
Blue campaign contributions will be reduced or may cease to exist
No worker should be required to have union dues spent on candidates or issues with whom or which a member disagrees
A form of extortion and violation of the first amendment that should us all displease
If unions stuck to benefits and working conditions and distanced from political campaigns themselves
More members may well want to be a member and remain on the union shelf
Too often public service unions have used dues to keep public officials in their pocket
Higher contracts that public officials desperate for contributions to stay in office are spineless to block it
