In dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called the decision "egregiously wrong.” She said the court upheld "these arm-twisted, take-it-or-leave it contracts" even though the labor laws of the 1930s have recognized "there is strength in numbers.".… Los Angeles Times [Note: Today’s court decision does not affect union members.]
