Someone needs to forward this to the #NeverTrump idiots.

The Supreme Court today split 4-4 on a conservative challenge to funding organized labor. Non-union employees must now pay union dues to public employee unions so they can campaign for Democrats.

Business Insider reported:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday split 4-4 on a conservative legal challenge to a vital source of funds for organized labor, affirming a lower-court ruling that allowed California to force non-union workers to pay fees to public-employee unions.

The court, shorthanded after the Feb. 13 death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and evenly divided with four liberal and four conservative members, left intact a 1977 legal precedent that allowed such fees, which add up to millions of dollars a year for unions.

The outcome emphasized the impact of Scalia’s death, as he likely would have been a decisive vote against the unions. During the Jan. 11 oral arguments in the case, Scalia was still on the bench, giving the court a majority of five conservatives. The conservative justices during the arguments voiced support for the stance of the non-union teachers in challenging the fees.

The 4-4 decision leaves in place an appeals court ruling in favor of the unions but sets no new precedent.

The court’s action came in lawsuit brought by a group of non-union public school teachers from California who objected to paying fees to the California Teachers Association union. A California law requires non-union workers to pay fees to public-sector unions representing workers such as police, firefighters and teachers to fund collective bargaining efforts.
