Overview

On June 27, 2018, the Supreme Court issued its 5-4 decision in favor of Mark Janus in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. This landmark case was a victory for first amendment rights, ruling that government employees can no longer be compelled to pay union fees as a condition of working in public service.

Mark Janus joins Stephen P. Barrows, managing director of programs at the Acton Institute, for a conversation on this historic case and his subsequent move from public sector employee to advocate for worker’s rights.
