Newsreview.com/Chico. By Marshall Elliott (CSUEU Chico State Chapter President). Organized labor’s struggle to protect workers’ rights has been long-fought in this country and it continues today. On Feb. 26, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Janus v. AFSCME. But the real goal of the lawsuit is to weaken workers’ ability to gain strength in numbers. A living wage, medical benefits, paid sick time and vacation are all in the crosshairs of the rich and powerful. This is an attack on all workers.
