Of Enforced Unionization and First Amendment Violations

An excellent editorial on the subject by George Will. There is no cognizable state interest whatsoever in forcing public sector workers into unions, and the only reason that this is happening–as Will points out–is that the power of unions has been dramatically diminished. I recognize that this upsets unions–and the Democratic party–but their discomfort is not a sufficient reason to force public sector workers to join unions. The Supreme Court should find as much, and I expect that they will.
