Welcome to the Jungle…. (not referring to my house this time)

Years ago, I read a book called the Jungle. This story exposed the child labor in America, and the lack of laws to prevent a kid from being eaten by a rat.

By my reckoning, kids are being eaten by a new kinda rat; that of the Demorat persuasion. Today, I called to a few places about a job application for my son, only to discover that a 15-year-old is not capable, according to govt. standards, of working. What a load of BS!

If we can work kids’ tails off in third-world countries; you can bet that we can do it here! This is a problem. My son is bright, physically fit, and morally capable to hold any position.

So somebody please explain to me why my kid can’t legally work?

Glad you asked, but shut your mouth, and hear the opinions of others…..

  1. The purpose of working, for the young, is either to acquire money or to acquire skills. Since their acquisition of money is forbidden by government, their other option is to acquire skills. What skills have a real future? If we take ‘The Mystery of the Shemitah’ seriously, and expect the Greek default to be the beginning of a major collapse, then the most important skills will be gardening and the repair of small gas-powered tools and farming equipment. Perhaps one of those falls within his interests or talents. Communication and persuasion would be useful too, but perhaps more hazardous in this changing world. .
