Ruling Limits Unions' Ability to Collect Agency Fees

, New York Law Journal

    I am disgusted by the attacks on Unions in this country. Let‘s go back to the days of 19th century wage-slavery, and see what happens to this country‘s middle class and economy. Good-bye, reasonable protections for workers, Hello, "you get sick and miss work, you‘re fired!!", and sweat shop conditions for the American worker. Because, oh, we can trust corporations, they‘ve always done right by their employees, voluntarily.
