Illinois GOP Governor Bruce Rauner is on the front lines fighting for Illinois workers who object to being forced to subsidize the political speech of unions that don’t represent their views.
The Supreme Court yesterday heard oral arguments in Janus v. Afscme, a landmark challenge to “whether public employees can be compelled to subsidize union advocacy.”
As the Wall Street-Journal explains, “In 2015 Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner sued to overturn a state agency-fee law. Child support specialist Mark Janus and two other state workers later joined the case, arguing that they shouldn’t be required to support collective-bargaining positions with which they disagree.”
Governor Rauner joined FOX News yesterday to discuss the Janus challenge and explained why he’s fighting for the rights of Illinois workers and standing up to government unions.
