    Petitioner Mark Janus works at the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services and didn’t like that a certain amount was deducted from his paycheck — he didn’t believe he should be forced to pay union dues or fees just to be allowed to work for the state. He didn’t agree with the 1.3 million-member AFSCME union’s politics, and so believed, under the First Amendment, he couldn’t be forced to contribute.

    It's insanity for states to still allow unions to have so much power over the workforce.

    Ascme alone launders 4 MILLION dollars of taxpayer dollars through public employees in campaign donations back to democrats. They also spend similar amounts every year through lobbyists back to democrats.

      In his court filing, Janus quotes Thomas Jefferson, who said to “compel a man to furnish contribution of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves, is sinful and tyrannical.”

        Its probably a guarantee since the vote was 4-4 last time without Scalia. The Dems were hoping another case on it never got brought up again for a few years.
