Ron Paul on Labor Department Outlawing Chores : "I Will End These Regulations"

Under the rule that the Department of Labor is currently putting the finishing touches on, children under 18 could no longer work in the marketing, storing, or transportation of farm product raw materials.

“Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”

Congressman Ron Paul claims this would effectively outlaw chores.

“Thanks to the Obama Administration, future generations of children will be deprived of these experiences.

“Now that the federal government is planning to, for all intents and purposes, outlaw chores on the farm, I wonder when the Department of Labor will forbid parents from requiring children to make their beds, clean their rooms, or set the table for dinner. The founding fathers would be outraged to see the federal government attempting to prevent children from helping their parents on their farms. If the American people select me as their next President, I will put an end to these regulations on my first day in office."
