    Interesting article from President Woodrow Wilson, 1916:
    LABOR AS A "COMMODITY." - Editorial - NYTimes.com

    Also, if you treat labor as a commodity, are you giving validation to Karl Marx's theories?

    Then, the same argument can be made about how the poor costs the US hundreds of billions in welfare. The rich has it's own faults, yes, but this isn't exactly the thread to talk about that.
