Another quote on labor law —

“There are probably no longer any solid reasons to restrict a statute of labour’s fundamental rights, such as the Statuto dei lavoratori only to those legally classified as ’employees’ employed in productive units with more than fifteen employees…. The Statuto dei lavoratori was intended, as everybody knows, to bring the Constitution inside the factory gates. Some time ago, labour walked right through those factory gates and dispersed among the network of subcontractors, franchisees, and small service contractors. The Constitution too should be able to take a few steps in the same direction.” — Massimo D’Antona in “Labour Law at the Century’s End,” in Labour Law in an Era of Globalization, 2002.
