Senator Jane Cunningham of Missouri and Utah Rep. Mike Lee think so. SB222 seeks to modify the labor laws that regulate child labor in Missouri, sponsored by Sen. Cunningham, who ironically chairs the Senate's general laws committee. Rep. Mike Lee, also wants to see the child labor laws be repealed and left to the states to determine, believing that they are unconstitutional.
I wonder if they feel that slave labor, civil and equal rights should also be left to the states. History shows us that without federal intervention, we still might have "White's Only" drinking fountains and lunch counters.
However, on the flip side, it would be nice if my ten-year old could contribute to the family's finances. . . even at $1/hour, ten hours/day could help us pay for cable. . .Answer Question
