    This is just the start.

    There's a reason why work hours are shortened for teenagers.  Grades for teenagers with part time jobs go down (less time for homework and/or they study then don't get enough sleep for school the next day).  If allowed to work until 10:15, they'll get home and to bed at about 11 PM, allowing a mere 7 hours sleep if they don't do any homework at all.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
