There are huge implications to this SCOTUS ruling upholding forced arbitration in the workplace. More workers will have to sign away their right to join a class action, just to get a job. Suing over wage theft and discrimination will become more difficult. https://t.co/0zUhvUxhXc

If Merrick Garland were on the Supreme Court instead of Gorsuch, this ruling would have come out the other way & workers would have been able to use class actions for effective redress--instead of being relegated to individual arbitrations, which are often skewed & nearly useless https://t.co/IlP1RDssBn

The second worst thing about SCOTUS legalizing low-level wage theft is that now I have to slog through a Gorsuch opinion. By which I mean that Gorsuch is a pedantic writer who over-explains things in a way that uses too many words and also ridiculous metaphors. #Gorsuchstyle
