The Impact of Janus v. AFSCME

The recent Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME, a case that tested the constitutionality of public sector union fees, was a victory for worker freedom. In 22 states - including Illinois - state workers had been forced to fund a union they didn't want to belong to. Janus v. AFSCME has changed that. What does that mean for Illinois? Liberty Justice Center Vice President Diana Rickert and State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Frankfort) join Host Jodi Carroll to get to The Heart of the Matter.
