Pine Tree State Workers Quit Jobs Rather Than Pay Forced Dues

Posted in Blog

A group of State employees from Maine have decided they’re not going to take it any more when it comes to paying forced union dues- many have decided to quit their jobs instead.

State employee Shirley Laruss, currently battling cancer, would rather her money go towards co-pays and medical bills.

Meanwhile, Mark Turek of UnfairShare.org says, "I’ve spoken with so many people that are so very, very frustrated. I’ve had people call me in tears."

Shame on the legislature in Maine for forcing their public servants to choose between paying dues to an unwanted union and losing their jobs.
