Lt. Governor's Statement on Janus v. AFSCME Decision

PROVIDENCE, RI -- Lt. Governor Dan McKee issued the following statement on the Supreme Court's ruling in Janus v. AFSCME:

"Today's #Janus ruling is a partisan attack on working Americans, a blow to our middle class and just another example of #SCOTUS turning its back on the American people. This decision is designed to undermine public unions and the protections that public workers have against the political whims of elected officials. As a former mayor, I understand that a worker's job and a family's livelihood should never be hinged on who you supported in the last election cycle. No politician should have that power. I know that Rhode Island will continue to strengthen our communities no matter how hard Washington D.C. tries to weaken them."
