Los Angeles, CA – The following statement was issued by Rusty Hicks, President of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, following today’s oral arguments of Janus v. AFSCME and National Day of Action in Los Angeles:

“While anti-worker extremists are seeking to divide working people and the ability to have a voice on the job in the Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court case, we will continue doing what we have always done: organizing to build power for all working people. No court case, no legislation, and no propaganda campaign can stop us from standing together.”
