Rapid response: Supreme Court's Janus vs. AFSCME labor union ruling

The Sacramento Bee, Bryan Anderson

Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco

“Today’s Janus v. AFSCME decision is a huge blow to workers across our country and will make it much more difficult for our middle class to compete in an increasingly unjust economy. Organized labor has helped to achieve many of the benefits we enjoy as a broader society. From weekends and paid sick leave to health care and the minimum wage, the labor movement has secured countless victories for working families over decades. It is vital to our democracy and the health of our economy that workers have a strong collective voice capable of holding those in power accountable. I stand with the working people of our state, and am ready to pursue options to ensure labor unions still have the ability to effectively represent and champion workers.”
