WASHINGTON, DC – Nerves are on edge today for an Illinois state employee challenging a public sector union over forced fees that workers have to pay the union as a condition of employment.

The case Janus vs. AFSCME, which originated in Illinois, will be heard this morning in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mark Janus, the state government employee at the center of the case, said he’s nervous.

“But what I think is important to note is that there is just as much right to say ‘no’ to a union as there is to say ‘yes’ to a union,” Janus said. “And that is a right that I don’t have [under the status quo].”
