today an estimated 400- 500,000 children legally work in agriculture. These kids are NOT the children of farmers; these are hired help whose health and education is compromised. They work in conditions most adults can’t physically tolerate.A child born to a farm worker is treated separate and unequal, denied protections from pesticides, arduous work and denied basic protections of non-agriculture children.

      These children should not be working in the fields. Child labor was abolished years ago and it's supposed to be illegal. It is not the job of children to support their parents. Parents are supposed to support their children.

      I believe that we should look at child labor issues from the perspective of "How would I feel about it if these workers were my own children? Would I be outraged?" If we answer in the affirmative, then we have a moral obligation to ensure that _no_ child is subject to those conditions.

      This should be important to any humane person who is aware of this travesty.

      To end the loophole that allows child labor bc by many other standard and in other industries this wouldn't be permitted!

      Farm labor is among the most dangerous in the United States and children should not be unprotected while working in farm labor.
