Some labourers who work for citizens at various tasks for a penny a day are the subject of complaints. Because they have no possessions by which they can be attached, and in certain cases they cannot be arrested, nor are their employers answerable for them (since they are day labourers and not servants belonging to the employer's household), these men are emboldened in offending and it is difficult to put a stop to their behaviour. Therefore, whenever anyone takes legal action against such a person by gage and pledge, no-one is permitted to give the offender employment until he has answered to the law; any person who contravenes this is to be amerced. If loss of work fails to force offenders to answer to the law, then they are not to be allowed to stay in the city.
