Trump administration proposes ending mandatory union fee deduction for Medicaid caregivers

July 11, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the proposed regulation by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to prevent states from automatically deducting union dues and fees from payments made to Medicaid caregivers:

“The Trump administration is to be praised for proposing to end state and local mandatory union fee deductions for Medicaid caregivers. There is no reason that those caring for their loved ones and other home attendants should be compelled to pay union dues or fees. That is a choice that should be left up to the individual.”
