Hsibijiet Politici - Papa Ljun XIII

"Let the working man and the employer make free agreements, and in particular let them agree freely as to wages; nevertheless , there underlies a dictate of natural justice more imperious and ancient than any bargain between man and man , namely, that wages ought not to be insufficient to support a frugal and well-behaved wage-earner. 
If through necessity or fear of a worse evil the workman accept harder conditions because an employer or contractor will afford him no better, he is made the victim of force and injustice." 
Mill-Enciklika "Rerum Novarum" Parag.45.
