Iowa Republicans Pass Bill to Repeal Child Labor Laws

The Republican-dominated Iowa Senate just passed a child labor bill that "allows 14-year-olds to work six-hour night shifts" and "allows 15-year-olds to work in plants on assembly lines moving items up to 50 pounds.” In addition, “16 and 17-year-olds will now be permitted to serve alcohol.”

Good grief! Sounds like these fun-loving Republicans wanna make every day a “Bring your child to work day.” Well, I suppose they figured all those fetuses that aren’t getting aborted - gotta have something to do. “All aboard! Next stop, the 19th century.” Gee, I can hardly wait to see what’s next. Indentured servitude, debtors' prisons, poor houses? Hell, they may as well bring back the poor houses, given that its nearly impossible for regular folks to afford to buy a home or even rent an apartment these days.

Anyway, now that Republicans have pushed this through, perhaps its time for patriarchal Christian fascists to begin working on other pet projects. You know, like overturning women's suffrage and restricting all voting to “landowners only." Assuming all this child labor stuff works out for them - then they can move onto the big prize - which is revoking the 13th Amendment. You wanna talk about cheap labor? I mean, how much does it cost if its free? And while we’re at it, how about paying the little bastards in “company scrip” that can only be spent in the “company store.” Now, is it just me, or do Republicans sure seem to have an odd idea of what a mentorship program looks like?

Of course, all of this fits right in with Republican efforts to defund and abolish public education. I mean, what’s the point of sending the little bastards to school if they already have jobs? Don’t want their heads full of a bunch of crazy shit like critical thinking and democracy. Oddly, its being reported that Republicans passed this law at 5 AM, and some are asking why? Well, the answer is really quite simple. You see, it turns out that neither Republicans nor cockroaches are very fond of the light of day.

The conservative motto for kids should be "Stop learning and start earning."

What next? Conservatives will get the age of military enlistment reduced to 12?


The children of this country (US) are safer in a factory than a classroom.
