frank about it, if you are 14 and can't be trusted with a sharp knife, there are some other issues that also need to be addressed.
Yes I get it, I know why we need labor laws so don't even start on me. But for cryin out loud, I was running heavy machinery at that age, and I was smart enough to not stick my limbs into places they didn't belong. And I was glad. I wasn't being "exploited", I wanted to work and make money for myself. I'm just saying that maybe this isn't as dreadfully outrageous as it's being made out to be.
