Having organized, I can say that I have a mix of emotions on the topic. I absolutely do not agree with the direction the Court is likely to take us—we don’t know how far it will go—but I also got a firsthand taste of the insularity of Union leadership too. The latter has left a lot of people feeling like Janus, who I heard speak in an interview. While I could tell he’s pretty rightwing, some of his points were ones that I heard normally pro-union people complain about, essentially the Union leadership being a clique of contract managers more than representatives of members.
Either way, this is exactly what I knew would happen if Trump were elected and why I urged progressives not to vote third party in swing states. This Court is going to be a long-lasting lid on progressivism even if Bernie gets in the White House with large majorities. Oh well.
