17. Child labor laws don't cover just working
They also cover working in hazardous environments and with hazardous materials.

Janitors must work with possibly contaminated bodily fluids and dangerous cleaning materials every day.

There is no way in hell a child should be allowed to be a school janitor.

Gingrich obviously didn't think this through. But then that meme characterizes his career anyway.

Personally I want an exception. My daughter wants to work in a coffee house desperately because she loves everything about it, but she can't for two years because of the labor laws. Poor girl.
