Capitalism Wins! We've officially reached neofeudalism
If you are a worker then you are a serf. Not figuratively a serf. Literally a serf.
A Wisconsin court has granted a hospital's request to block seven healthcare workers from leaving to start new jobs at a competitor.
ThedaCare, a hospital in Appleton, Wisconsin, asked the court for a temporary restraining order to prevent the employees from accepting jobs at Ascension Northeast Wisconsin, a competitor hospital.
Mark J. McGinnis, a judge for the Outagamie County Circuit Court, granted ThedaCare the temporary restraining order on January 20. Attorneys representing both hospitals agreed to meet the morning of January 24 to see if they could come to another resolution.
At what point is it mandatory that we all bow and scrape when the master's carriage comes by?
Obviously capitalism only applies to people that have capital.
Fortunately a judge lifted this feudal contract today. Maybe it was because that it cast capitalism in an unflattering light.
Ascension Northeast Wisconsin said in a statement before Monday’s hearing that ThedaCare “had an opportunity but declined to make competitive counter offers to retain its former employees.”
The employees, members of ThedaCare’s interventional radiology and cardiovascular team, were at-will employees and were not contractually obligated to stay with ThedaCare for a fixed time, according to Ascension, which is part of one of the largest Catholic health care systems in the United States.
