Arbitration has consistently been shown to benefit the large corporations that use these agreements. Why do you think they want to use these agreements in the first place? This way, they can keep any disputes about potentially shady and downright illegal business practices behind closed doors rather than the court of public opinion. Not only that, but settlements are almost always much less when reached through arbitration rather than in a courtroom. This is yet another example of a bill passed that will benefit a small group of super-rich folks, who just happen to have their hands on the strings holding up our marionette representatives.
