    Instead of just repeating the talking points of the plaintiffs bar and activist groups, why don’t you do some real research on the pros / cons of arbitration? The only winners in a class action are the attorneys.The “class” is usually rewarded with a discount coupon or something else with little real value, but the attorneys pocket a big $$ payoff. In the real world, arbitration levels the playing field between the employee and a large defendant. Quick and efficient. No long drawn out appeals. If arbitration is such an evil thing, why does every collective bargaining agreement contain an arbitration clause?

    “Critics have said arbitration can make it tougher to root out misconduct such as discrimination within companies because the proceedings generally are kept private.”
    Translation: We can’t publicly shame them for years and make them pay more to our pet projects without knowing where to push the buttons. It becomes a weapon to shakedown the company.
