[video] Take Action: End Child Labor in US Agriculture
Author: Human Rights Watch, Published on: 7 May 2010
We like to think of agriculture as good, clean, outside work…Kids working for their families’ farms…The reality today is something completely different…The child labour law in the US is good except when it comes to agriculture. US law allows children to work in agriculture at far younger ages, for unlimited hours outside of school in…dangerous conditions...So a child can work perfectly…at age 12…Right now, there is a bill pending before Congress called the Care Act...The Care Bill is about protecting the most vulnerable kids…young kids working for such long hours, compromising their health and education.
