Paycheck protection for Florida teachers

Teachers in Florida will get a pay raise, but their union will find it harder to collect its annual dues (“DeSantis Does a Teacher Pay Two-Step,” The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 26).  That’s because the union can no longer extract member dues unless teachers specifically grant it permission to do so.

Teachers who opt out of joining a union nevertheless receive all the benefits as paying members.  These so-called free riders have it both ways.  I’ve longed resented such teachers because they enjoy the same protection while contributing nothing for it.
