ruled employers can prohibit their workers from banding together to complain about pay and conditions in the workplace. Neil Gorsuch, said the contracts are valid under the law. Ruth Bader Ginsburg called the decision "egregiously wrong."

Today's decision undermines the goals of civil rights laws which have been put in place to deal with systemic discrimination that sometimes rears its head in the workplace. No American should be forced to sign away their right to invoke the protections of these laws.

Today's 5-4 Supreme Court decision blocking employees both from suing employers and even from joining together in arbitration CAN BE OVERTURNED by repealing the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act. Let's get this done! Gorsuch

This is what a stolen seat looks like. Meanwhile, Trump & the GOP are quietly installing judges for lifetime appointments at a speed and volume unseen before. Judges who reflect their agenda for decimating human rights. He’s stacking the courts for generations to come.

I HATE seeing opinions reduced to outcome-based headlines. There is so much nuance that is ignored, outcomes twisted to mean what it does not, and complete ignorance of what was written. Process and institutions matter.

Despite the ruling in , we will continue to defend Californians from all backgrounds & their rights to band together - our hardworking families need a meaningful option to protect themselves in the workplace. Collective bargaining is critical.

When employee contracts mandate individual arbitration to resolve disputes, those clauses bar collective and class-action claims from employees, the court rules.

Through a stolen seat, the Supreme Court remains a reliable backstop for big corporations. Donald Trump ran as a champion of the working man & woman, but this decision will harm working Americans for decades.

Justices Sotomayor & Gorsuch visited my son’s school in D.C. today. Now that’s a cool way to close out 8th grade!

Sixty-four years ago, decided the landmark civil rights case . Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is voting on three Trump nominees for the federal bench who refused to say that it was decided correctly. For shame.

decided to take away employees' legal right to sue their employers through class action. This decision is a blow to working Americans and continues to stack the deck in favor of businesses and the wealthy.

🚨Courts matter, cont: In 5-4 split written by Gorsuch, sides with employers who force workers to sign mandatory arbitration agreements as a condition of employment - they apply even in cases of sexual harassment and gender or race discrimination.
