Not only recently: "The laws of kings have always been made against such actions as the common people were most inclinable to, on purpose to ensnare them" wrote Gerard Winstanley in the 17th century.

However, you are wrong to attribute the problem to the law: the Jack-in-Office (and that term dates back to the 16th century) concerned in this case was acting unlawfully. As Winstanley also said, "Truly tyranny is tyranny in one as well as in another, in a poor man lifted up by his valour as in a rich man lifted up by his lands".
