              Learn more at: http://billmoyers.com/segment/bill-fletcher-…nions-in-peril/ Lost in the Supreme Court media chatter last week: a disturbing ruling in Knox vs. SEIU Local 1000 that restricts labor unions from directing collected dues toward political causes. There’s no similar limit on corporations, naturally – yet another indication that the power and status of modern unions is waning, especially when compared to the unbridled influence of Corporate America. With a sharp decline in union membership, a legion of new enemies, and a series of legal and legislative setbacks, can unions rebound and once again act strongly in the interest of ordinary workers? Bill talks to two people who can best answer the question: Stephen Lerner and Bill Fletcher, Jr. The architect of the SEIU’s Justice for Janitors movement, Lerner directed SEIU’s private equity project, which worked to expose a Wall Street feeding frenzy that left the working class in a state of catastrophe. Fletcher took his Harvard degree to the Massachusetts shipyards, and worked as a welder before becoming a labor activist. He served as assistant to the president of the AFL-CIO, and is author of the upcoming book They’re Bankrupting Us – And 20 Other Myths About Unions. Bill Moyers is back!

                    This week the Supreme Court began its new term with a case that could further upend campaign finance laws by allowing individual donors to give millions of dollars to candidates and political parties. McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission has been billed as Citizens United 2.0, referring to the 2010 decision that gave corporations, unions and the rich the opportunity to pour vast and often anonymous amounts of cash into political campaigns. This week on Moyers & Company, Bill talks with Yale Law School election and constitutional law professor Heather Gerken, who warns that the fallout from McCutcheon could be even more damaging to our democracy than Citizens United. McCutcheon challenges caps on how much individual donors can give to candidates and political parties and could raise the amount to more than $3.5 million. The overall cap currently stands at $123,200 per donor for the 2014 election cycle. Gerken says if the court rules in favor of McCutcheon, one donor could write a check that covering a politician's entire election campaign. "We're going to start to worry about the bad old days when politicians were beholden to an incredibly small group of wealthy donors ... Right now when politicians want to raise money, they have to talk to at least middle class voters. They have to talk to a pretty big number of voters to raise money for their campaigns." Gerken fears that a small rich group would not only influence the outcome of elections, but policy decisions, as well. "It's not just a seat at the table on election day. It's a seat at the table for the next four to six years when they're governing," Gerken says. "Wall Street is going to be controlling the congressional agenda, Main Street is not."
