Alyse Galvin Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Janus Decision

June 28, 2018

Alyse Galvin, Independent Candidate Seeking the Democratic Nomination for Congress in Alaska, Today Made the Following Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision in Janus v. AFSCME:

“The U.S. Supreme Court today launched a direct attack on our nation’s unions. The decision in the Janus case is a massive blow to workers, teachers, nurses and almost 60,000 Alaskans who are members of or represented by unions. This will especially hurt women and people of color in the workforce.

“Today’s ruling is just one more example of our government favoring powerful special interests over the people. Justice Kennedy’s retirement will make it even more difficult for working people to get fair treatment in our system. Where is Don Young? If he really stood for workers he’d be speaking out.

“We need change. We need it now. Send me to Congress to fight for what’s right.”
