      they could not put you to work 18 hours a day in a textile mill where children died frequently when caught in the machinery, or impress you into working in asbestos mines?

      Do you really want to go there?

        the labor laws as proposed would allow children to go back into dangerous working conditions like the sweat shops of the 1920s...we are talking about changing sheets and planting some shrubs....
