    Forced arbitration seems like such an insanely corporate dystopian idea that is profoundly naive to allow or support. Our justice systems, even as flawed as they sometimes are, at least offer most people (individually or in aggregate via class actions on their behalf) a way to fight against injustice and abuse, and people being locked out of that system through an employment contract is absurd to me.

    The option to take something to civil court is a right you should not be able to forfeit under any circumstances that I can think of, especially in this case given how tipped the power scale is in employers' favor. It takes some laissez-faire indoctrination bullshit of epic proportion to think otherwise, IMO.
