Booker Statement on Supreme Court’s Blow to Labor Rights in Janus vs AFSCME Ruling

June 27, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), today issued the following statement:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is an outright attack on the rights of working men and women everywhere. By ruling in favor of so-called ‘right to work’ laws —which have their origins in the Jim Crow era—this decision marks yet another distressing victory for the corporate interests and billionaires that have sought to dilute worker power for decades. I will continue to fight against the relentless efforts to undermine workers’ rights and do everything in my power to make it easier—not harder—for working people to join unions.”
