By Lawrence Hurley, Alison Frankel, Andrew Chung and Robert | WASHINGTON
The Trump administration is poised to side with employers in a Supreme Court case over the rights of workers to bring class action lawsuits against companies, according to a court document and a source familiar with the litigation.

Signaling the reversal of a position staked out earlier by the Obama administration, which backed employees, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), an independent agency in the federal government, said in letter to the court on Thursday that its own lawyer will represent the board in the employees’ class action rights case.

It will take over from the Justice Department, which had previously handled the case.

It is unusual for the government to change positions in a case already pending at the Supreme Court, and a source familiar with the litigation said the change of lawyers indicated the department was likely to file court papers in support of the employers.

1. Hello, America

This is Political Science 101, and I'm Professor Jay.

The first lesson comes straight from the news of the day.

Republicans "side with employers," while the Democrats and "the Obama administration" "backed employees."

Now how many of you are "employers"?

And how many of you are "employees"?

Excellent.

So whom did you vote for in the last election?

Oh, really? Now tell me how that makes any sense at all.

I want 500 words by Monday.

13. Republican base voter: "I have nothing to fear. My Whiteness will protect me."

"Class action lawsuits only help lazy Blacks and Mexicans. Hard working White people have nothing to fear. Any day now those Bush tax cuts should be trickling down."
