WASHINGTON -- An Obama administration proposal, which would have restricted child labor on farms, was withdrawn last week after criticism from agricultural groups.
The rules, which were supported by child labor advocates, would have banned children younger than 16 from using most power-driven farm equipment, including tractors, if they had not taken a training course.
The proposal also would have prevented those younger than 18 from working in feed lots, grain bins and stockyards.
