In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Budget & Tax News managing editor Jesse Hathaway speaks with Rebecca Friedrichs, a California teacher who’s going all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States to fight for her (and other teachers’) protection against compelled speech and involuntary association by labor unions.
Friedrichs explains how the teachers union has failed to protect the best interests of children and educators, but only serves itself and its interests as an organization. Instead of allowing people to choose to join the union and voluntarily pay dues, teachers unions require members to be a part of the unit and pay money they earned as a condition of employment in the school system.
