Moshe Z. Marvit, a labor lawyer who has written several articles for The New Republic on unions, here analyzes the Harris v. Quinn decision and maintains that it sets an impossible standard for unions to meet. He believes that it is a preliminary to reversing decades of Supreme Court precedent and completely crippling unions.

Marvit was co-author of “Why Labor Organizing Should Be a Civil Right.”

He wrote an earlier article with Richard Kahlenberg in “The New Republic” about the attacks on collective bargaining in Michigan and Wisconsin.
