Missouri Farm Mom Testifies About Dangers of Proposed DOL RegsThu, 09 Feb 2012 14:38:03 CST
A Missouri farm wife testified before Congress last week concerning the Department of Labor's proposed rules that would prohibit young children from working on their family's farms.
Chris Chinn and her husband, Kevin, are fifth-generation farmers. They live with their two children on their Clarence, Missouri, hog farm. The Chinn's dream is that their children will have the opportunity to be the sixth generation of farmers in their family.
Chinn's testimony reflected her fears that unbridled and wrongheaded government intervention will make achieving that dream impossible by destroying that which is best about raising children on the farm.
Chinn writes a blog about their life on the farm and she addresses this issue in a recent post which you can access by clicking here.
