Child Labor Enforcement: Are We Adequately Protecting our Children?


This morning on Capitol Hill, NCL's Sally Greenberg and Dave Strauss from the Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs will testify before a subcommittee hearing on Workforce Protection on the issue of domestic child labor, including the Department of Labor's inadequate enforcement of child labor laws and the need for reform of agricultural child labor laws. They'll be joined by former child field worker Norma Flores, who will tell her story of growing up in a farmworking family in Texas. If you're not going to be on Capitol Hill yourself this morning, you can listen to the live Web cast at the committee's Web site, or you can read Sally Greenberg's testimony at our site.
