The Subtleties of Labor Information

Copyright: Jeanne Curran and Susan R. Takata and Individaul Authors, March 2002.
"Fair use" encouraged.

This essay is based on two articles in the New York Times on March 27, 2002. By the time I had created the file, Peter Farrugio had posted an essay on the same two articles to PSN.

But these unstated assumptions are crucial to any consideration of social justice. More soon. Meanwhile, the articles:
