MADISON, Wis. — The U.S. Supreme Court has announced it will hear Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, a case being promoted and underwritten by right wing special interests as part of their ongoing attacks against the ability of working people to organize in their workplaces and effectively participate in public debate.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“We’ve seen firsthand in Wisconsin what happens when the right wing attacks the rights of working people. Despite more than 80 straight months of private sector job growth, Wisconsin lags much of the nation on jobs.

“The only freedom this lawsuit seeks to protect is the freedom of pro-corporate Republicans to hold onto political power. This attack on workers is nothing more than Republican politicians seeking to tilt the system even further in favor of their wealthy, corporate benefactors.”
