Right on, brother. It is so annoying when I see rich individuals and corporations writing their own laws. I would prefer laws based on the common good and common sense, but it the ground rules are known and documented, lets raise $20 from 50,000 people and get it over with.
But we do not all share common goals. In 1986, the software companies got the late Sen. Moynihan to pass a law making it illegal for programmers to be independent contractors. The companies felt that they could get cheaper labor if people did not have a choice. The law is still on the books, but, thankfully, it is not often enforced. And there are technicalities for getting around it.
Thanks for a good common sense article. Tom Jung
