Twisted Logic: Forced Unionism Protects Free Speech

The Founding Father’s must be spinning in their graves at the thought that the First Amendment of the Constitution mandates coercion and confiscatory union dues payment to union bosses. Yet that is exactly what labor union lawyers are arguing in their efforts find the Indiana’s new Right to Work law unconstitutional.

CNBC reportsthat “Indiana’s new right-to-work law should be struck down because it infringes upon unions’ free speech rights by depriving them of the dues that fund their political speech, attorneys for a union challenging the law contend.” What they fail to tell the court is they have the right to fund their political speech but only through voluntary, not mandatory, due’s payment. As such, the argument is laughable on its face.
