Skip to comments.Obama’s Outrageous DOL Rules Will Restrict Minors From Working on Family Farms – Killing Farm Life
Posted on 03/21/2012 9:40:19 PM PDT by george76
Barack Obama is committed to killing off the family farm an American tradition.
For generations children and adults have worked together on the family farm. Those days are over.
Senators John Thune (R-S.D.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today introduced the Preserving Americas Family Farm Act, to prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from enacting its controversial proposed restrictions that would ban children from working on family farms.
Senator Thune spoke out against the Obama Administrations proposed labor rules for youth who work on farms and ranches on the Senate floor.
The Obama Administrations rules are so strict they would restrict minors from handling most animals and even from using battery-powered screwdrivers.

It is time to abolish the Department of Labor (DOL).
BTW, what are the other 3 departments?

Why do you think they enacted "health care reform"
Obama can’t have the last vestiges of American family farms get in the way of his collective farms manned by Democrat Party approved workers. Nothing like good ol’ Communist run farms to knock down food production and control the population’s food supply.
It is worse than that. I do not know how many times I have come across those raised on farms or grew up working in family business. Hands down the bet workers/employees you can find.

They can't. They'll be happy with the damage they do until they're finally busted by the SCOTUS, ten to fifteen years from now. By then, most of the farmers will be toast. To get the rest, they'll tweak the rules just a bit to accomplish the same thing and force the farmers to sue again to stop them. Bureaucrats have plenty of your money with which to wait out their hosts.
So this means no kid has to do any home chores. Ever.
Absolutely insane. There’s really no other way to describe it. Someday Americans will wake up from their stupor and realize that the country they thought they lived in has vanished without a trace.
The problem is not H.O. but the people who still think that he is the next best thing to sliced bread. Unfortunately more and more people who vote for a living outnumber the ones who work for a living and this does not bode well for our future.
Illegal farm hands?
Like we pay attention to what the government says we can and can’t do. My grandchildren will work on our family farm. The kids have since the early 1900’s and the tradition will continue. KMABO
"Sorry, Ms. JustaDumbBlonde. Your insurance doesn't cover that accident your son had while driving the tractor. There is a clause in your policy that prohibits covering illegal activity. And, since your son is only 15 and therefore not, by law, allowed to drive the tractor... Well, we're sorry but you are going to have to pay the bill yourself."
Govt. owned and run farms as in communist countries......
The children would be in their govt. run schools, fast tracked in career directions according to their intelligence levels....
This is a massive power play in favor of unions. The plan is to unionize every scrap of labor that has previously been done by farm family members.
there is virtually nothing off limits when it comes to government intrusion into our lives
