Cedar Point Nursery Decision Shows the Supreme Court is Dangerously Out of Step

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision equating allowing union organizers access to speak to agricultural workers at their workplaces with the taking of private property without just compensation demonstrates just how extremist the current Supreme Court majority is when it comes to promoting corporate interests over the rights of working people.

The radical decision in Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid endangers a wide range of laws that protect the public, potentially preventing health and safety inspectors, utility workers and others from entering business to perform their duties.

Over the past five years, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump conspired to manipulate the Supreme Court appointment process and pack the court with justices committed to advancing an ideological agenda that benefits the rich and powerful, rather than following the rule of law. The current Supreme Court is broken, and the majority is dangerously out of step with the needs of everyday Americans.
