The CARE Act Had 107 Cosponsors in Last Congress

[The current Congress has not yet seen the expected re- introduction of the CARE Act. The information below if for the Congress that ended in December of 2010].

The Children’s Act for Responsible Employment

The Children’s Act for Responsible Employment (CARE) would extend child labor protections to U.S. agriculture. It would prohibit 12- and 13-year-olds from working in agriculture. It would extend labor protections to 14- and 15-year-olds that all other young workers currently enjoy, restricting the hours you can work and prohibiting work that is unsafe. It would also bar 16- and 17-year-olds from doing work that is none to be hazardous–as is the case in all other industries. The bill also calls for increased fines, added pesticide protections for children, and injury reporting requirements for growers when young workers are injured.
