Professor Myriam Gilles testified before of the House Judiciary Committee. She said, "Forced arbitration clauses are everywhere...what this really means is if an employer rips off a group of employees, they can't sue that employer...The only thing they can do is take on all the burden and cost of going against the employer in a one on one arbitration...Forced arbitration is so popular that over the past decade it's almost impossible to find a product, a service, an amenity of modern life that doesn't force us to sign away our rights. Over 60 million American workers are subject to forced arbitration."
