A further example has been pointed out by a legal authority writing on the
problems of redress in administrative law: The right to earn a living, according to
one's capabilities and training, may be regarded either as an aspect of liberty (to
develop one's personality) or as an aspect of property, if property, as it must, is no
longer defined as a compound of tangible, real, and personal assets, but the
totality of all rights and interests capable of legal protection which have an
economic value.

The dividing line between what conceptually constitutes human rights and what
constitutes a citizen's prerogatives is, in practice, difficult to draw with certainty.
The solutions provided by positive law are not always consistent. Moreover, a
right as fundamental as that of earning a living, which conflicts with the interest in
protecting a national's economic well being from competition, is subject to
barriers that are not compatible with the principle of economic freedom. 1. The
Private Sector ...

blacks to earn a living. The promise of freedom and political enfranchisement
held out by President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation of 1862

The so-called "right-to-work" laws would outlaw "union shop" agreements,
whereby employers contract to hire only those who agree to join the majority
