RACINE, WI – Randy Bryce released the following statement on the Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis case.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision upheld the right for bosses and corporations to give their workers an ultimatum in their employment letter– sign a gag order or face unemployment. Many workers face all too common problems like sexual harassment and wage discrimination, and now they’re left with no legal option but to try and take their claims to their bosses’ hand-picked arbiter in mediation. This is a slap in the face to everyone who works for a living and a massive blow for worker’s rights. Mitch McConnell stole a Supreme Court seat, and now working people are suffering.”

    It will continue to get worse until we vote the republicans out of office. Unfortunately history will repeat itself and we may have to go back to the days of the labor movement with this continuing assault on workers. i guess we didn’t learn anything the first time.
