Wright Discusses Supreme Court Visit on WJR

Illinois union scheme similar to SEIU dues skim

Patrick Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, was a guest on “The Frank Beckmann Show” on WJR AM760 this morning, discussing a case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday in which he and Mackinac Center Executive Vice President Michael Reitz filed an amicus brief. Both were present for oral arguments in Washington, D.C., Tuesday in Harris v. Quinn.

The stealth unionization scheme in question in the case is similar to the dues skim inflicted upon home-based care givers in Michigan, during which the SEIU took $34 million from Michigan’s most vulnerable residents.
