Harmeet Dhillon Appears on ‘Fox News @Night’ To Discuss Teacher’s Union Case in California

According to Dhillon:

Our five clients working in a conjunction with the freedom foundation has filed this type of lawsuit and other states. They are claiming they have opted out of their union card contracts and despite having opted out; the union is not letting them out until the anniversary of their one-year contract. Every pay period their pay checks are being deducted, significant money in the case of the plaintiff Bethany Mendez, $1500 a year on a meager teacher salary—constitutional violation. The Supreme Court was very clear that you cannot take this money unless there’s a voluntary waiver of the First Amendment, and none of these teachers have made a voluntary waiver of the First Amendment rights.

Chris just called these teachers stupid and said that their students are going to learn nothing and he also ignore the fact that this is a constitutional violation. That’s the difference between your gas analogy and what’s going on here. If you think about it in terms of a term the left loves which is freedom of choice, that’s what these teachers are really looking for. They are looking for the choice to be part of a union or not and by the way the sky doesn’t fall and people aren’t part of a union. As you know in the federal system, people are not required to be part of the union and the unions go on just fine. No, when you have a constitutional right, it’s not sufficient is that you can opt out. After they opted out, union sent subs and try to intimidate them. And this is not acceptable for the state of call Weiner to follow the consultation.
