Thanks for replying. I will read through your other articles to give me some some intellectual context for what you have said. My initial reaction is that at least some of what you say is very surprising. I advise many very large businesses on employment law issues. They have, as you might expect, an enthusiasm for free markets and minimally interventionist governments. I’ve yet to encounter one that thinks legally enforceable minimum employment entitlements reflect either. You are the first opponent of such rights I’ve encountered who has taken a position other than that they represent the opposite: an unacceptable interference in the labour market and the hobbling of businesses with costs they could avoid if free to do so. Hence my interest in what you have written elsewhere.

Again, thanks for commenting and especial thanks for having something genuinely new to say.
