A minute of research can be beneficial.
"The proposed regulations would not apply to children working on farms owned by their parents."
(I love how overreaching government is purely "the left". Apparently some folks were asleep the 8 years prior to "the left" inhabiting the White House.)

I wonder if they will be using this against the Amish? (Of course they will!) If they do come down on the Amish and other rural religious communities I wonder if we will even hear about it? People around here generally look down on the Amish and their horse drawn buggies. However, many also do business on a regular basis with the Amish farms. What about their right to their religious beliefs?

The govt. taking the reigns from 4H and FFA (Future Farmers of America)! What kind of message are they sending to our kids?
The message is clear.
"You will eat what we allow you to buy".
"Food will be grown and controlled by those who we approve"
"Monsanto - No Food Shall Be Grown That We Dont Own"
Monsanto - In Bed With The Feds
The Agriculture Department is dutifully drafting a comprehensive “coexistence policy” that supposedly will diffuse tensions between conventional (chemical but non-GMO), biotech, and organic farmers. Earlier this week industry and Administration officials met in Washington, D.C. to talk about coexistence. Even though the Organic Consumers Association tried to get into the meeting, we were told we weren’t welcome. The powers that be claim that the OCA doesn’t meet their criteria of being “stakeholders.”
