Sometimes You Can't Have Your Cake and Eat It Too, Mark

Former Illinois Department of Public Health worker Mark Janus decided that as a public employee, he didn’t want to pay fair share fees to the union that negotiated his pay and benefits. So he became a plaintiff in one of the most infamous U.S. Supreme Court cases decided this year.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court ruled Mark and his fellow scabs don’t have to pay these fees, and they can still continue to reap all the benefits. After the ruling, Mark decided to retire and join a conservative think tank, so his co-workers threw him a going away party.

Unfortunately, since the party was members-only, Mark wasn’t able to join in the fun.
