Senate, Gang of 8,working on Immigration Reform Bill: Eliminate child labor in U.S. agriculture under 'unskilled labor'

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.
