    I have no problems with over that prevent exploitation, which is the only time the competition you are talking about would come into play. I'm talking about ways to allow kids to help their parents, or their neighbors in a safe way. Because farming IS so different from state to state and crop to crop, I truly believe that it should be handled by the states, and if exploitation is an issue then maybe a federal plan mandating state safety plans to satisfy regulators.

    corporate factory farms and local family farms are two very different beasts, they should probably not painted with the same wide brush.
