Arbitration should be fair, not forced.

Most people don't know that forced arbitration clauses are buried in the fine print of just about every contract they sign. These contract clauses force people to give up their right to go to court - even if a company harms them or rips them off. Instead consumers are pushed into secretive arbitration. In arbitration there is no judge, jury or right to an appeal, and arbitrators do not have to follow the law. The laws that protect us from discrimination based on age, sex, religion, race, and disability become meaningless in arbitration.
