Supreme Court Deals Defeat to Workers Rights, Upholds Arbitration for Individuals Only
Updated On: May 24, 2018
May 21, 2018  | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | The Supreme Court has sharply restricted the rights of American workers to join with others to challenge their company for allegedly violating federal laws on wages, overtime pay or civil rights. The justices by a 5-4 vote Monday agreed with Trump administration lawyers and ruled employers may require workers give up their rights to join together in complaining if they are denied overtime pay or a minimum wage. In dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called the decision "egregiously wrong.” She said the court upheld "these arm-twisted, take-it-or-leave it contracts" even though the labor laws of the 1930s have recognized "there is strength in numbers.".… Los Angeles Times [Note: Today’s court decision does not affect union members.]
