AFSCME in Dues Freefall After Wisconsin Labor Union Reforms.

27th January 2014

Read it.

Turns out that if you give people an opportunity to vote with their pocketbooks, they take it. I’d also note that a hefty percentage of those people opting out of forced union dues are undoubtedly doing it because Big Labor is a lapdog for the Democratic party establishment. Gallup found in 2012 that 35% of union households backed Mitt Romney (34%, government union); while that may not make much of an electoral difference, I imagine that those folks are now happy not to be paying for Democratic attacks on their candidates. I suggest that the unions take a hint or two from this.
