Democrats in this rust belt state are defying SCOTUS to pay back their Big Labor backers

Jan 27, 2023

Democrats are getting cocky. 

In one state, they are preparing to openly defy the Supreme Court of the United States.

And it is nothing more than a blatant power grab to pay back their Big Labor backers.

Michigan Democrats eye Right to Work Repeal, forcing workers under Big Labors thumb

Right now, workers in Michigan are not forced to pay dues to a union as a condition of employment thanks to Republicans passing a state Right to Work law in 2012.

This move infuriated Democrats and Big Labor, and they’ve been waiting for payback ever since.

Now that Democrats have complete control in Michigan, one of the first bills they filed was a complete repeal of Michigan’s Right to Work law, even going so far to repeal Right to Work protections for public sector employees, which are required under the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 Janus decision.

Democrats know that this an open defiance of SCOTUS, but they don’t really care.

According to the Detroit News, Democrat State Senator Darrin Camilleri boasted that “It’s important for us to think about the laws we want regardless of what the Supreme Court says is precedent because they’ve shown precedent doesn’t mean much anymore.”

Go figure, a Democrat proposing to just ignore the Supreme Court because he disagrees with the ruling.

Forced Unionism violates the First Amendment

The fact is Right to Work laws are necessary to protect the First Amendment rights of workers. 

Without Right to Work laws, workers are forced to pay money to union bosses that they don’t want or asked for in order to get or keep their job.

These union bosses then use these forced fees to pay for politics that many workers overwhelmingly oppose.

Over 90 percent of all Big Labor political donations go to Democrats who hate guns and support abortion-on-demand up until birth. 

Many union workers in Michigan are avidly pro-gun and are supportive of restrictions on abortion.

But if Michigan’s Right to Work law is repealed, many blue collar workers who disagree with their union’s politics will be forced to fund many causes that they vehemently oppose.

Forced unionism is a clear violation of the First Amendment’s protection of the right to association. 

If you have a right to associate, you also have a right not to associate.

Sadly, the U.S. Supreme Court has been mostly inept in forcing states to respect its Janus decision. 

But perhaps if Michigan Democrats brazenly defy it the Court may just be forced to respond and perhaps they’ll just strike down forced unionism all together.

One thing is for sure, Democrats couldn’t be more clear that this is all about political power for them and they are willing to trample all over the rights of workers on their march to fight for campaign cash from Big Labor.
