The U.S. Department of Labor last month proposed changes to child labor regulations for agricultural workers. The proposal would bar employees under age 18 from working in certain jobs, including grain elevators, silos, feed lots and stockyards. Farm workers under age 16 would be banned from operating most power-driven equipment.
This is the first proposed update to Fair Labor Standards Act rules concerning child farm workers since 1970.
