This is a discussion of constitutional issues involved in federal and state regulations pertaining to labor. The importance of substantive due process has dwindled away, except in relation to picketing and Jim Crow unionism. The dominant issue has become the exercise of power, in a jurisdictional sense, to eliminate socially injurious practices. During the past half century the Supreme Court has taken almost all possible positions on these matters. Pursuing the ideal of a living document, the Court has retailored the Constitution to suit the political exigencies and the dominant interest pressures of any given time.
