Do you support or oppose the Child Labor Farm Regulations proposal?


In addition to preventing children from being able to work family farms, the new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, would also revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA, replacing them instead with a 90-hour federal government training course. Do you support yet another regulation implementing government control instead of private sector?

    I highly doubt the rationale is for creating jobs -- at least not for the private sector. Maybe an agricultural farm czar position with an army of regulators? This law will not help farmers.

    Jobs that were shipped overseas where it is legal to pay waaaaay below what would have been paid here -- I know this well!

    It doesn't matter WHY the law is being considered. If you think that children under 18 should be allowed to work their own family's farm, then this law would make that illegal. It should be considered wrong.

    Vets taking their kids to farms is only ok if the kids are under control. I had a kid come with his parents and he required their attention to the point of the ridiculous. I found another vet.
