Blazing a trail to the 19th Century in Missouri

Child labor laws. Who needs them. SB 222 in Missouri will do away with ll child labor laws. We're not going to educate them so we might as well make them useful.

# children under the age of 14 no longer being limited in being able to work;

# children being able to work during the school term without a permit;

# 16-year-old children being able to work in hotels and motels without restriction on hours;

# the removal of restrictions on employing 16 year olds and requirements regarding obtaining certification and permits for children to work;

# the elimination of authority of the Director of the Division of Labor Standards to oversee employers of children;

# the removal of an evidentiary presumption that any child under the age of 16 present at a place where labor is employed is employed there.
