What US Supreme Court decision overturned minimum wage laws and employment protection for women?
Adkins v. Children's Hospital, 261 US 525 (1923)
The Supreme Court held that minimum wage laws artificially restricted the bargaining rights of the corporation, and raised the possibility that Congress could pair minimum wage laws with maximum wage laws, thereby removing the right of employees and employers to freely negotiated work contracts, as established in Lochner v. New York, 198 US 45 (1905).
Adkins was overturned by the decision in West Coast Hotel v. Parrish, 300 US 379 (1937), when the Supreme Court decided the government had an interest in protecting the rights of vulnerable populations and their ability to support themselves.
