The Supreme Court just ruled that employers can require employees to agree to arbitration and waive their rights to file class-action lawsuits.
These binding clauses lock millions of workers and consumers out of the courtroom, and now their legality is being determined by the highest court in the land.
Rulings in recent years have effectively forced consumers to file class actions in the region where the corporation is based or to disaggregate claims into separate filings.
The company kind of has a point—we do need better labor laws. Just not the ones Silicon Valley is promoting.
