Wow, CA is on the ball!!

A bill passed by the Legislature last month, AB 465, would make California the first state to ban arbitration agreements as a condition of employment and outlaw retaliation against current employees who refuse to sign them.

Gov. Jerry Brown is under intense pressure to veto the bill, which has been labeled a “job killer” by the California Chamber of Commerce and is opposed by some 40 trade groups representing homebuilders, restaurants, hotels, retailers and other industries.

Brown is under equal pressure to sign it by another 40-plus groups ranging from the American Civil Liberties Union to the Consumer Federation of California to labor unions representing nurses, truck drivers, firefighters, construction workers and others.
Will aggrieved workers get their day in court? Gov. Brown must decide whether to sign a bill to end mandatory workplace arbitration - The Orange County Register
