    The workers remind me of investors in non-guaranteed government sponsored enterprises who talk about implied government support of the enterprise (be it Fannie Mae or a Middle Eastern royalty affiliated business). Also, those workers probably lived in company or formerly company owned housing from which they were not being evicted for not paying the rent upon.

    A parallel example of the living law is the French practice of tolerating the kidnapping of corporate executives as a tactic in labor disputes when the executive is not actually physically harmed.
