Wagner Statement On Supreme Court’s Ruling On Janus v. AFSCME

2018 Republican gubernatorial nominee Scott Wagner issued the following statement praising the United States Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of workers’ rights in the case of Janus v. AFSCME:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is a huge step forward empowering workers and putting more money in the paychecks of public employees, for them to do what they want with it, not what union bosses want. With this precedent now in place, as governor, I will be able to make the necessary reforms to ensure that more Pennsylvanians can find jobs, they can be compensated fairly for them, and we can make reforms to the public education system we need. If Tom Wolf and the public sector union bosses are really committed to protecting and empowering workers they should celebrate this decision and the freedom it provides.”
