Manzo, M and Robert Bruno.(2018) After Janus: the impending effects on publicsector workers from a decision against fair share. Illinois Economic Policy Institute
This report, conducted by researchers at the Illinois Economic Policy Institute and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, forecasts the effects of a Janus decision against fair share fees– specifically on state and local government workers, including teachers, in the United States. The analysis utilizes 2017 data on the relationship between “right-to-work” laws on all state and local government workers as well as on pre-K through 12 and special education teachers more specifically. The report assesses the likely impacts of Janus on public sector union membership and on the wage and salary incomes of state and local government employees, including teachers. State-by-state impacts are also presented. A concluding section recaps key findings.
