Default Child Labor Banned

You will no longer be able to put your kids to work around your farm, yard or business to help out. You would think that giving your kids a work ethic as in odd jobs to help the family business, or cutting grass, feeding the animals would be a good thing. Not according to our liberal government. I think it is wanting to create a generation of kids thinking they do not need to do anything to get anywhere in life. An entitlement attitude. Do we really need more individuals claiming, "I'm entitled to something for nothing".

So it's bad to have your children do tasks around your farm or what not, but its ok to buy 90% of our consumer goods from countries that have zero labor laws?

adopt a child from a third-world country to save them from the sweatshops, then take them to Build-A-Bear Workshop for their birthday. Ironic. (bo burnam song I think)

My retarded wife agrees with it. She thinks there are some mean farmer parents that make their kids work instead of go to school.

This wont change anything, almost all the kids (at least in my area) are paid under the table so the only way the government would know is if they sent people to every farm randomly to check. and even then the families could say he or she's just doing chorus around the house.

I’m sure that there are parents that over work or endanger their own children at the family business, so there does need to be some oversight. But this seems to go way too far.

This is just a way for some liberal jackoff to get attention. Good bad or whatever. There stupid azz is now getting attention so they can point the finger at there opposition and say "look they don't care about the children".

I guess farmers could just hire more foreigners and pass the farm on to them instead of there kids. Turn it into a corporation and outsource the profits.

This kind of thing makes my head hurt when these Commie bastards get praised over ruining what should be a unspoken understanding. A family farm is just that. Kids learn from a young age the skill of farming, trading, selling, investing, and so on. It is not something some BS elect needs to stick there nose in to look special.

I know kids that grew up on farms and loved to work on them, help feed cows, chickens, horses and clean up the barns. I did it and loved. As growing up on a farm in a family it is everybody in the home working together just as in our homes today. Everybody has a job to do in the home, its chores and they need to be done by everybody.
Working like that as a kid teaches responsibility and a sound work ethic.
