Working Kids

I've always had issue with silly things like labor laws. Anytime the government tries to impose regulations, it just hurts business. Let the free market decide what to do. If labor laws were necessary to protect people, then let the consumer decide whether they care about worker conditions. Case in point: labor laws restricting children from working too many hours. Kids are restricted in the number of hours they can work, which is a completely ridiculous premise if you ask me. You don't instill work ethic by restricting children from working.

I applaud attempts to reverse this stupid labor "protection" law. That's why I applaud efforts like Senator Jane Cunningham's drive to repeal child labor laws. What good are children for if we're not training them for the workforce? They provide a source of cheap labor for business, and they receive training for becoming productive workers. Who can object to that?
