Neil Gorsuch Just Demolished Labor Rights

His decision, a frontal attack on the New Deal, effectively legalizes wage theft.

  • 21 May 2018
The Supreme Court issued a 5–4 decision Monday in Epic Systems v. Lewis allowing employers to deprive their workers of their right to sue collectively.

It is difficult to overstate how devastating Epic Systems is to labor rights in America—and how far Gorsuch strays from federal law in order to implement his preferred economic policy.
