Episode 10: Mark Mix

Can a private organization force someone to pay them to speak on his or her behalf? That’s the question before the U.S. Supreme Court as it hears oral arguments in Janus v.

The case may well mean the end of mandatory dues under agency shop agreements, the major source of funds for public employee unions, including the teachers’ unions which have a stranglehold on the nation’s public schools.

Learn all about one of the most important Supreme Court cases of the year on this edition of Reality Check.
