New Labor Dept. rule banning farm chores/ abolished 4-H clubs, replace with federal program.

A proposal from the Obama administration to prevent children from doing farm chores has drawn plenty of criticism from rural-district members of Congress. But now it’s attracting barbs from farm kids themselves.

The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child-labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.

The new regulations, first proposed August 31 by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, 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.

    This is plain scary. Working on a farm teaches solid values and the satisfaction that comes from hard work. Plus, it is the parents’ right as PARENTS to allow them to raise their children. This is just another step in the government’s wish to become the de facto “parent” and make ACTUAL moms-and-dads inconsequential.

    This president, and his team of government lackeys, needs to go.

    I agree with just turn right- completely! He is the worst president I know of so far! Praying for someone good will get into office this time 😉

    Regardless of how well intended these laws may be this law proves, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the overreaching arms of our Government are beginning to suffocate Americans!!!
