Being dedicated to the future progress of humankind
should be the prime concern of all civilized beings.

Dear Eric and other fellow Extropians:

The situations I mentioned involving the exploitation of contract labor
and other forms of independent contracting have been fairly well reported
in the media over the years, although most of the reports could have been
a bit more detailed .

I'm not sure if you really want me to dig into the archives to provide you
with a plethora of incidents and specifics to counter your apparent
preferrence for minimal regulation. Leave it to say that I sincerely
believe that all forms of laborers deserve some sort of substantive safety
net. This, believe, is part of our social contract.

Anyway, those who wish to do some research into the history of labor
exploitation and unfair practices in interstate commerce are free to do

If you wish to do some further research check with your state department
of labor regarding intrastate violations.
