I'm sending Clyde some US History texts

Ron may have been a decent twat doctor before he became a politician, but he obviously knows little about organized labor. It should be treated as what it was under the common law - a unlawful conspiracy in restraint of trade and to commit extortion.
Then I suppose that "common law" might have some real problems with the way WAL MART and other assorted corporate entities have done business, including perhaps the notion that having given tax breaks for businesses to relocate overseas is part of a conspiracy to drive down wages and deprive Americans of jobs which would otherwise remain here?

"Common law" is nothing less than a dodge to deprive workers of their right to organize and articulate their concerns; under that reasoning, slavery would be a justifiable form of employment with the power of the state to back the employer. Come to think of it, that has happened in the last century in this country, hasn't it?

And others. The common law wouldn't have any particular problem with Wally World. Nor, probably, should it. Of course, the common law, as originally understood, didn't recognize artificial persons, either.
