Well, worry no more, because the Department of Labor has your back, kids.
"Children employed in agriculture are some of the most vulnerable workers in America," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "Ensuring their welfare is a priority of the department, and this proposal is another element of our comprehensive approach."Sure, right now it's tobacco cultivation, pesticides and texting while using a combine, but fret not, I'm sure the DoL will be making short work of the dreaded task of making your bed in the morning (lower back injuries are responsible for billions of dollars' worth of disability claims per year).
All joking aside, are chores children do for no pay different in some regard for work they might do for pay? Is there an assumption of BATNA disparity for children? What is the appropriate response?
