Finally, something that gives me hope.
The Federal Arbitration Act, passed in the 1920s, made arbitration clauses in contracts binding. In the past decade, it has become increasingly common to find forced arbitration clauses afflicting both consumers and employees. The FAIR Act—I must find out how politicians come with such great acronyms—will reverse this regulation and allow consumers and employees to sue in court again.
Opponents of this bill say that it will lead to increased costs of various things. To this I say: Freedom is messy, but it is the better option.
