As if we haven’t learned by now that unions are corrosive and abusive organizations that provide no productive benefit, there are states that continue to pass legislation that helps them grow*.
A bitter debate results in opportunity for providers to unionize. However, Republicans say unionization would drive up daycare costs.
The bill will allow the approximately 12,700 registered in-home care providers a chance to decide whether to form a union.
If a union were to form, providers would have to pay union dues if they accept state child care subsidies, or they would be required to pay what are called “fair share dues” if they choose not to join.
Those who would rather not participate at all say they will have to turn away children whose parents pay with subsidies.
Unions backing the bill stand to collect millions of dollars in union dues, according to various estimates.
Luckily for the unions, you can’t open day care facilities in South Carolina for Minnesota families.
