State Employees Association of North Carolina extends membership to student athletes

The State Employees Association of North Carolina has approved a plan to offer membership to student athletes at the state's 17 public universities. The decision comes on the heels of a decision by a Federal labor officials that student athletes at Northwestern could form a union.

The move will no doubt cause the Republicans in the state legislature to go apoplectic. How soon before they try passing a law banning student athletes from joining a union?

They may as well join

the church of Scientology for all the benefit they would receive from being a member of SEANC.

Symbolism

It's more the symbolism than anything else. Just mentioning the word "union" makes members of the legislature and Art Pope get the vapors and reach for their smelling salts.

SEANC is not a union.

I'm a moderate Democrat.
