Larson Interviewed

David Allen Larson, Hamline professor of law, was interviewed by the StarTribune concerning the Harris v. Quinn United States Supreme Court decision holding that Illinois' state-paid home health care workers can opt out of paying union dues. Larson explained that the five-to-four Supreme Court decision did not decide the pending high-profile issue in Minnesota concerning whether home health care workers and childcare workers can form a union. However, Larson says the decision will affect the ability of the union to raise revenue if it is able to unionize these workers in Minnesota.
