Dear Department of Labor: How about a little bit of "do this, not that"? [View all]

In the spirit of the "eat this, not that" articles I often see on Yahoo!, I offer an alternative to the proposed new Department of Labor rules forbidding child labor on farms.

Instead of passing these laws, how about addressing the root of the problem: the hazards that plague farmwork.

How about this instead: STRONGER farming workplace safety regulations?
