The woman who took her fight over forced unionization all the way to the Supreme Court says there is a moral argument to be made about workers and their choices.
Rebecca Friedrichs spent her Labor Day weekend talking about labor freedom. Friedrichs is the California teacher whose case against forced union dues made it all the way to the Supreme Court.
"It is morally right to stand-up for children,” Friedrichs said. “It is morally right for taxpayer money to be used toward educating the children, not putting teachers in the classroom who aren't good for them. We need to bring teachers, parents, administrators, taxpayers out there who care. Make the moral argument. Fight the moral fight."

Friedrichs said the same moral argument can be made for other workers who want to have a choice at their jobs.
It's the same argument in a case in Illinois where three state workers are suing to get out from under fair share fees required by AFSCME.
That case is still winding its way through the courts.
