Improve Conditions of US Child Laborers/ Mejorar condiciones de trabajadores infantiles

There are kids who don't have the opportunity to go to school because they are working in the fields to support their family. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association) has received budget cuts.  They have fewer regulators now than in 1981, even though there are more than twice as many worksites needing regulatory oversight (Semuels 2014).

The OSHA website, designed to inform minors of the laws governing their employment and their rights as child-workers, is neither child-friendly in its language, nor accessible in other languages (US Dept. of Labor 2018).  Sign our petition for a better OSHA website, more regulators, and more protection for children.  

Here is a video we have made to spread awareness: https://youtu.be/sLjGyI6_U5A

Hay niños en nuestra país que no tiene la oportunidad de ir a la escuela, tiene que trabajar.  Por reducciones al presupuesto de OSHA, hay menos reguladoras hoy en día que habían en 1981, aún que hoy hay más que lo doble de los sitios que requieren la supervisión.

El sitio web de OSHA, diseñado para informar los menores de edad de las leyes gobernando su empleo y sus derechos como trabajadores, no es accesible para niños ní es disponible en español.  Firma nuestra petición para un mejor sitio de OSHA, más reguladoras, y mejor protección para los niños.
