Why Did the Supreme Court Change Course on Agency Fees? — The Education Exchange

This podcast was originally published on EducationNext.

On the last day of its 2017-2018 term, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Janus vs. AFSCME that public employee unions can no longer collect agency fees from non-members.

Clint Bolick, an associate justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss why the U.S. Supreme Court felt it was necessary to overturn a decision from the 1970s allowing agency fees.
