Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Janus v. AFSCME, public sector unions, Democratic voters and workers in general.


You see these groups who have bee fighting in the states to kneecap unions going on and on about worker freedom, yet these same groups are fighting to lower the minimum wage, fighting to take away benefits from public and private sector workers, they're fighting to get rid of the prevailing wage - they're fighting to do all these things, why? Not because they're for the freedom of workers, but because they are specifically targeting folks that support the Democratic Party.

Journalist Mary Bottari uncovers the corporate face, and hand, behind the Supreme Court case Janus v. AFSCME - as right-wing billionaires and their client think-tanks threaten to dismantle public sector unions - under the guise of worker 'freedom' but with an end-goal of removing worker rights and protections across American society.

Mary wrote the feature Behind Janus: Documents Reveal Decade-Long Plot to Kill Public-Sector Unions for In These Times.
