For Our Future Florida Condemns Court Decision In Janus v. AFSCME
Ft Lauderdale, FL – In response to today’s bare majority 5-4 Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME which ignores decades of precedent, For Our Future Florida released the following statement:
“The Janus decision today is part of a decades long war against unions waged by Republicans and corporate donors to further stack the deck against America’s working class. This conservative court ruling against blue-collar and working people in favor of corporations will be viewed as mission accomplished for Senate Republicans who stole this seat from President Obama and corporate politicians like Governor Rick Scott who cheered Gorsuch’s nomination, but the court of history will have a starkly different view,” said For Our Future Florida communications director Blake Williams. “We already know this story in Florida; it’s not a coincidence that we’re both a right-to-work state and also a ‘state of the working poor’. The fact is, America needs unions now more than ever. Unions helped build America’s middle class from the ground up, brick by brick, paycheck by paycheck, and have been on the frontlines of the fight for civil rights, better paychecks, safer working conditions, and reducing economic inequality.”
