Supreme Court backs employers over workers in first of two major labor cases


USA Today has the story Supreme Court backs employers over workers in first of two major labor cases.

Gorsuch said. “But as a matter of law the answer is clear. In the Federal Arbitration Act, Congress has instructed federal courts to enforce arbitration agreements according to their terms.”

Do you suppose that the Supreme Court is able to read the constitution? Maybe they just can’t read amendments.

Seventh Amendment – U.S. Constitution

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Does this mean that forcing people to use arbitration instead of having a jury trial is a way of preserving the right to trial by jury? We have certain rights that we cannot agree to forego. I don’t think we are all speaking the same language even if this purports to be English. If this country were silly enough to declare that English is the official language of the USA, what meaning would that have? It all depends on what the word English means. Would there be an official dictionary?
