Its amazing that this Gov. thinks it;s ok to teach children how to put on a condom but they cant learn responsibility and help out on the family farm.

They'll start with farm families and eventually make it against the law for any kid to help his or her family in a family business.

We need to remind our leaders that they serve with the permission and on the behalf of us, the citizens. Too many elitists politicians believe they know better than parents, and they have a hard time keeping their hands off everyone's business.

Obama might as well kiss the farm vote goodbye.

Yeah, I'd like to hear from the Iowans on the board. Won't this kind of thing be a non starter for farmers in Iowa, even if they're Democrats? I know Iowa is leaning red this time anyway, but this just nudges it closer to the R column.

Labor Dept. withdraws child labor rule.

Quote:
Under pressure from farming advocates in rural communities, and following a report by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have applied child labor laws to family farms.

Critics complained that the regulation would have drastically changed the extent to which children could work on farms owned by family members. The U.S. Department of Labor cited public outcry as the reason for withdrawing the rule.

“The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the ‘parental exemption’ — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms,” the Department said in a press release Thursday evening. “To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration."

This administration and its bureaucracy shows its hand and its true colors time after time. We can't let them have a second term with its corresponding "flexibility."

Here's the Dept. of Labor press release: http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/whd/WHD20120826.htm

Labor Department statement on withdrawal of proposed rule dealing with children who work in agricultural vocations

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today issued the following statement regarding the withdrawal of a proposed rule dealing with children who work in agricultural vocations:

"The Obama administration is firmly committed to promoting family farmers and respecting the rural way of life, especially the role that parents and other family members play in passing those traditions down through the generations. The Obama administration is also deeply committed to listening and responding to what Americans across the country have to say about proposed rules and regulations.

"As a result, the Department of Labor is announcing today the withdrawal of the proposed rule dealing with children under the age of 16 who work in agricultural vocations.

"The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the 'parental exemption' — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms. To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration.

"Instead, the Departments of Labor and Agriculture will work with rural stakeholders — such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Farmers Union, the Future Farmers of America, and 4-H — to develop an educational program to reduce accidents to young workers and promote safer agricultural working practices."

Obama is campaigning. It is right that this overly oppressive farm labor ruling was withdrawn, however, it should never have been introduced in the first place. This way, Obama slyly has another opportunity to campaign--to say how much the farming sector means to him. (Not!)

We do have safety issues on the farm that are greater than the average situation. Machinery and even animals can be dangerous, physically, although in the city the dangers are greater from crime, etc. The better way to address this issue is privately. Parents need to teach their children safety--and they do want to keep them safe. They balance the benefits of teaching the ethic of hard work and responsibility with safety issues. Such farm organizations as Farm Bureau also offer safety training programs for children and teens on the farm. I also recommend hunter safety classes for those young people who want to hunt with a gun. Finally, our state governments ought to be the ones, more than the federal government, to regulate any such safety laws.
