    Default New bill in Congress would restore workers’ rights

    Signed!!

    If a worker is seeking justice because they have not been paid fairly, have been discriminated against, or have been sexually harassed, they are often forced into a process that overwhelmingly favors the employer―and they’re forced to manage this process alone.

    Mandatory arbitration clauses and class action waivers are part of a long and growing list of tactics used by employers to keep workers’ bargaining power weak and their wages down. EPI research shows that between 1992 and today, the share of employees subject to forced arbitration has increased from just 2 percent to 56 percent! That means that more than half of U.S. workers would not be able to pursue a claim in court if their legal rights are violated by their employer.

    This fall, Democrats in Congress introduced the Restoring Justice for Workers Act―a crucial step toward shifting the balance of power back to working people. And the bill already has 57 cosponsors in the House and nine in the Senate. But this bill has yet to get a vote in Congress.

    With a new Congress getting ready to be sworn-in in just one month, let’s tell the next Congress to make protecting workers’ rights and ending corporate abuse a top priority in 2019.
    Click here to sign the petition to the 116th Congress calling on them to immediately introduce and pass the Restoring Justice for Workers Act in 2019.
