Call me ignorant because I had no idea that there were states which had laws making it legal for companies with union contracts to refuse to hire an employee unless they joined the union and fire an individual if they lapse in their union dues.
I never heard of this, maybe because in Florida that doesn't exist.
Can you imagine a government entity backing this? Regardless of the pros and cons, the one reason I believe it's in existence is because the union in said states greases the palms of the politicians who favor the law. That's all it is.
It's disgraceful. I'd love a case like this to go before the Supreme Court.
