It Is Legal For Kids To Work On Tobacco Farms, But It Can Make Them Sick

quote [ Advocates say that gaps in federal regulations leave child workers vulnerable to the health risks of nicotine and pesticide exposure. Labor laws allow larger farms to hire kids as young as 12. ]

"In 2015, Human Rights Watch interviewed 33 children, ages 13 to 17, who worked on tobacco farms in North Carolina. Nearly all of the children interviewed described experiencing symptoms of nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, skin irritation or respiratory symptoms either during or after work."

This is bullshit. Legally they can work all day farming tobacco but they cannot legally enjoy the smooth refreshing taste of a Marlboro when their shift is over.

Is this is the future liberals want? Someone needs to think of the children.
