There may not be a worldview to present if this term is peculiar to the history of the United States. While similar contracts might or might not exist or have existed elsewhere, they may be called something different and be not "yellow dog" contracts. —Centrx→talk • 05:58, 11 September 2006 (UTC) look at brigitta's face haha —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:43, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
Origin of the term
There is a header with "origin of the term" in it but no actual discussion of the origin of the term. Was it the origin racist? I know the term "yellow" meant part black in the US at the time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:54, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Contradiction -- union membership prohibited or not?
The first sentence of this article says:
A yellow-dog contract...is an agreement between an employer and an employee in which the employee agrees, as a condition of employment, not to be a member of a labor union.
Then later in the article it says:
...it was not membership in a union that was usually prohibited, but participation in those essential activities without which membership is valueless.
this term also is know today from its origins as for the first time it was used, the employer was the owner of a yellow dog named pickles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:56, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
