On Monday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a case that could fundamentally alter workers’ ability to have a voice. Ostensibly filed by California teachers, the real backer of the lawsuit is a conservative astroturf organization funded by the Koch Brothers. Their goal is to defund unions to make it harder for people like teachers, nurses, and firefighters to have a voice for fair pay and safe worksites. The case will likely be decided this summer.
