31. Here is what the Dept. of Labor has to say about this...

The Labor Department says the regulations would not apply to partially owned and operated family farms while emphasizing that the rules are intended to protect all children equally.

“Children employed in agriculture are some of the most vulnerable workers in America. Ensuring their welfare is a priority of the department, and this proposal is another element of our comprehensive approach,” Solis said in a statement when the proposal was announced.

The Labor Department notes that the fatality rate for child farm workers is four times higher than that of non-agricultural child workers.
