Larsen Statement on Janus Decision

Jun 27, 2018 Issues: Fighting for Workers

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) issued the below statement on today’s Supreme Court decision about Janus v. AFSCME.

“Organized labor put food on my table and clothes on my back. My father was a union guy and he, along with others, helped build the U.S. and raise the country’s labor standards.

“The entire workforce benefits when unions bargain collectively. Today’s Supreme Court decision is a step backwards and will hurt working families who are trying to ensure a better future for their children.”
