A shadowy national effort funded by big corporations and PACs is working to roll back child labor laws that have been in place since the 1930s. Why? Because corporate lobbyists are looking for a new pool of workers to exploit!
The most extreme child labor bill is under consideration in Iowa, where they’re trying to allow kids into ultra-dangerous meatpacking facilities, high-volume Pepsi bottling plants, and building demolition and construction sites where more than 5,000 workers died last year. And it just passed the Iowa Senate this week!
