I just saw this posted by a friend on Facebook. I was dumb founded. The Obama administration is actually proposing a bill that would make it illegal for children to farm chores on their family farms.
The bill, proposed by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, was proposed on August 31, 2011.Â If passed, the bill would not only put new regulations on “child labor” around the family farm, but “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.”
The bill is written in vague terms, and even lawyers would have a hard time decifering it.Â It would create legal jams for many small farms. This jam, would not be of the tasty kind.Â
