I'm confused. There is only a "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" which
states simply, "Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment,
to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against
unemployment." <---- Note, the UDHR is not international law, despite what
some unions would have you believe.
How does the GPL violate that?
