THIS IS WHAT CAN HAPPEN...

...WHEN ONE POLITICAL PARTY BACKS DOWN, AND DOES NOT CHALLENGE UNCONSTITUTIONAL BEHAVIOR BY THE OPPOSITION.

FROM NPR, 5/21/2018.
"In a case involving the rights of tens of millions of private-sector employees, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, delivered a major blow to workers, ruling for the first time that workers may not band together to challenge violations of federal labor laws."
"Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch said that the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act trumps the National Labor Relations Act and that employees who sign employment agreements to arbitrate claims must do so on an individual basis — and may not band together to enforce claims of wage and hour violations."

NEIL GORSUCH WAS THE DONALD TRUMP NOMINEE FOR THE SUPREME COURT VACANCY. IT GAVE THE REPUBLICAN AGENDA A MAJOR BOOST TOWARDS RETURNING THIS COUNTRY TO A TIME WHEN CORPORATE SPECIAL INTERESTS  RULED THE LEGAL SYSTEM, MINORITIES DIDN'T COUNT FOR MUCH, SOCIAL REFORM WAS JUST A DREAM, AND EMPLOYEE PROTECTIONS FROM ABUSE MEANT NOTHING.
HOW DID IT COME TO THIS? HERE ARE A FEW POSTS TO REFRESHEN YOUR MEMORY.
