So are we going to boycott companies that are benefiting from this right wing SCOTUS?

The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that workers at a California business could not band together to seek compensation for what they said was their employer’s failure to protect their data.

The vote was 5 to 4, with the court’s conservative members in the majority.

The decision was the latest in a line of rulings allowing companies to use arbitration provisions to bar both class actions in court and class-wide arbitration proceedings. In earlier 5-to-4 decisions concerning fine-print contracts with consumers and employment agreements, the court ruled that arbitration provisions can require disputes to be resolved one by one.

Those rulings can make it difficult for consumers and workers to pursue minor claims even where their collective harm was substantial.

I don't want to use a business that does this. The SCOTUS is also planning on ruling if discrimination based on sexual orientation is OK. Not going to use any business that will take these SCOTUS rulings and use them to conduct business.

1. Repeal of or significant changes to the Federal Arbitration Act would be a great start

That is the linchpin of court decisions regarding forced arbitration.

This is on my dream list of legislative changes should we score control of the Senate and White House.
