When Ferguson Electric refused to hire David Carr because he was a union organizer, the company was found guilty of unfair labor practices and ordered to pay back wages. The company argued that it should at least be allowed to subtract the amount Carr was earning from the union while out of work. But the court disagreed and ordered the company to paythe full back pay. (NLRB v. Ferguson Electric Co., No. 00-4056, 2nd Cir., 2001)
