Tester's bill blocks proposal to restrict young agriculture workers

The U.S. Senate's only active farmer is pushing a bipartisan plan to block the Labor Department from unnecessarily restricting young people who work on farms and ranches.


Jon Tester's bipartisan bill prevents the Department of Labor from enacting proposed rules that restrict how teens can work in agriculture.

In September, the Labor Department announced proposed restrictions that would limit the work teens could do on farms and ranches owned by anyone other than their parents.

Tester's Preserving America's Family Farms Act, introduced with Senator John Thune (R-S.D.), prevents those new rules from going into effect.

"Montana is a world leader in agriculture because our farmers and ranchers learn the values of responsible, safe work at an early age," said Tester, who still farms on the same land homesteaded by his grandparents a century ago. "I will fight any measure that threatens that heritage and our rural way of life."

Last month, Tester spoke from the floor of the U.S. Senate urging the Labor Department to withdraw its proposal saying "the skills young people learn from working on a family farm translate into a healthy work ethic that will serve them their entire lives."

Tester has been an outspoken critic of the Labor Department's proposed restrictions since they were first introduced. Last fall, he successfully urged the Labor Department to extend its public comment period so that Montana farmers and ranchers could give their input.
 
OT, I thought when these "child labor" laws were discussed previously, you said it did not have anything to do with farms/ranches.



Now you are claiming that somebody is doing something to protect against what you claimed was a conspiracy theory previously?
 
see that is the problem- democrats create a "problem"

so other loser democrats can try to gain votes by coming in to save the day and fix the "problem" oldtimer is trying to get you to take your eye off the ball- namely democrats causing the "problem" in the first place and trying to get votes for the loser tester.

there was no "problem" in the first place- democrats made the "problem" up.

tester is no hero- this is partisan politics at it's worst- tester is obama's boy!

Oldtimer what political party came up with the regulations that Tester is trying to stop? Can you tell us if they have implemented other regulations that other sectors of the struggling economy might find as offensive as you and Tester seem to think this this one is to farmers and ranchers? BUT YET YOU SUPPORT THEIR EVERY MOVE EXCEPT THIS ONE. :roll:
