I just read an article noting that teen employment is down. For the fourth year in a row. It has been about that long that I've been afraid to hire a teenager.
When the regulations get to the point where it is just too difficult people will do whatever it takes to avoid the law. In this case, why would you hire teenagers with special wage and hour laws when you can just hire poor barely legal immigrants?
Here is the link to the article.
Here is a link to the regulations...
Here is a link to other insane regulation which deals with on farm storage of fuel. We don't have a tank farm. We grow grass seed, and grain, and hay. If someone drops a fifty-five gallon drum of oil it will never end up in the river. However, you can't prove that and saying, "well it hasn't so far..." would not get you off the hook!
The record-keeping will be impossible. Of course it all make sense if you realize it is in reality just a protection racket. Random inspections and fines. Of course you can pay in advance and have the regulators give you an assessment and lower your chances of an inspection.
Have a nice day...
