Obama Backs Down On Regulating Child Farm Chores After Public Outrage

"Under pressure from farming advocates in rural communities, and following a report by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have applied child labor laws to family farms.

Critics complained that the regulation would have drastically changed the extent to which children could work on farms owned by family members. The U.S. Department of Labor cited public outcry as the reason for withdrawing the rule.

“The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the ‘parental exemption’ — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of the proposed rules on small family-owned farms,” the Department said in a press release Thursday evening. “To be clear, this regulation will not be pursued for the duration of the Obama administration.”"

    They've backed down for now. This will go on their list of "Things To Do That Americans Hate, But We Don't Care" that they will bring back up and get done if Mr. Obama is re-elected.

    That he would even try something like this tells you all you need to know about the man.

    Give them a chance to re-word it and try it again. Whatever it takes is the liberals motto.

    Now his administration gets attacked because it is responding to public outcry, but it's interesting, deaths and injuries are on the rise on farms. I would really monitor which jobs kids work on (the parent should monitor.) It's a dangerous business.

    They are attacked because they would even try it. It's all about control Tunde. But you're cool with that. Then again, you don't have to worry about it where you live, do you.

    It WILL be snuck in by some other means. The Unions need to ban using your children instead of Union Workers on your farm.
