    Regarding that teacher who wants to sue over union fees: quote – “Filed in U.S. District Court in Camden, Ann Smith claims her constitutional rights are being violated by forcing her to pay ‘representation fees’ as a condition of her employment as a public school teacher.” Anne Smith earns a salary of more than $82,000, thanks to her union. If she has tenure, a pension and health benefits, it’s thanks to the union. If the woman hates unions so much, why did she decide to work at a unionized public school; there are non-unionized charter schools, private schools and religious schools (with lower wages, fewer benefits and weaker worker protections). Her lawyer is from Texas; who is paying for the lawyer fees? I’ll bet she isn’t footing the bill for this whole phony baloney anti-union garbage. It’s all about destroying public sector unions, not justice, not free speech, not the Constitution and not helping the children. These anti-union operatives will not stop until they have destroyed all unions and turned America into a right to work (for less) nation. think Walmart employees.
