    He is fixing to wipeout American tradition on American farms that go back prior to this nations inception. This move by his labor department will hurt the American farmer and it will stifle work ethics in our youths. Under the new rules, teenagers working on farms is considered 'Child Exploitation'. Under New Rules Proposed Hiring Persons Under The Age Of 16 Will Be Illegal Except For Family Members Of Farms Owners. They cannot engage In what is considered Dangerous Work. Dangerous chores include operation of any vehicles working with land or livestock (tractors, combines, field cultivators, etc) and that includes 'Bailing Hay'. What will these new rules ultimately force American farmers to do? That's right, hire mexican or wetback cheap labor. Folks, this is what happens when when you have a president that is not constitutionally qualified to serve as commander in chief. It is what happens when you elect a president born with a allegiance to a foreign sovereignty other than America where our traditions are sacred, especially on the farm in rural America. Our president doesn't understand American customs, traditions or our way of life. This is the reason this election season we must bring full assault on his eligibility issue with the American public in order to save these customs and traditions.


    Federal rewrite of labor laws causing a flap down on the farm - Washington Times

    The Obama administration is considering revisions to federal agricultural work rules that effectively would bar teens younger than 16 from engaging in a number of traditional chores for pay — including detasseling.

    The department is reviewing those laws, which also would cover work with bulls, cows and other farm animals and farm machinery, at the urging of groups such as the Child Labor Coalition and the National Safety Council.

    The rules would not affect children working on their parents’ farms, but could affect minors who want to work for relatives or hire themselves out for temporary work during the summer. The Labor Department proposal would restrict the range of chores children could do for pay, including driving tractors, branding cattle, working above a certain height and herding livestock on horseback.

    Corn detasseling companies that hire the youth work crews are among the most outspoken, saying that keeping teens out of the field and hiring adults, if they can find them, will cause labor costs to spike. Teens earn anywhere from minimum wage to $10 an hour for corn detasseling work in the fields and spend long days in heat and humidity during about a monthlong season.

    “At first I thought it was a joke,” Iowa corn farmer Henry Hemminghaus recently said in an interview with KWQC-TV of the Quad Cities. “It would eliminate 40 [percent] to 70 percent of my workforce. It would probably eliminate about 1,200 out of the 2,000 kids I hire.”

    Instead of worrying about teens on farms in rural America why doesn't Obama focus on teens working in the drug & prostitution trade in urban America?

    It's because his mother WAS a prostitute as it has been revealed as well as the fact that Obama did drugs too. He just pardoned several drug trafficers two weeks ago.

    Or burlarizing and muggings for their car payments and insurance. Just let the illegals make the honest wage to send back to Mexico. Thank you, Obama.

    Does it make a difference? Now that the EPA has declared dust a pollutant, there won't be any farms for them to work on.

    Hey maybe you can go work on the farm since you couldn't handle working for the Peace Corps that I tried to get you to join. Shoveling cow and horse manure should be right up your alley and it should help Obama add to his shovel ready jobs plan.

    What's the worry?

    Papa Obama and his comrades in arms KNOW what is best for us.
