DYK there are only c.740 federal labor inspectors, covering 11 MILLION workplaces, in the #UnitedStates? Since 2019 #ChildLabor violations in the #US have increased by a massive 88%. @USDOL needs more staff to help #EndUSChildLabor

Rollbacks SQ.png

Despite some #US states trying to roll back #ChildLabor laws, others are working to increase protections. It IS possible to work with legislators to ensure children are NOT being exploited - write to them today to #EndUSChildLabor!

For many kids, working in a #FastFood chain is a rite of passage. But working the late shift on a school night violates federal child labor law. Most #US #ChildLabor violations in 2023 were in fast food chains. #EndUSChildLabor 

Meatpacking SQ.png

Kids as young as 12 were found cleaning #US meatpacking plants, including unaccompanied children who fled violence & poverty for safer lives in the #UnitedStates. Family dinners should not come at the expense of a child's freedom. #EndUSChildLabor

Agriculture SQ.png

Do onions make you cry? They should when they're farmed with #ChildLabor, right here in the #US. Children as young as 12 can toil an unlimited number of hours in our fields. #EndUSChildLabor

Child safety is a top priority when we buy a car - we shouldn't have to think about the safety of the children who helped make them. But in the #US, children as young as 12 were found making vital parts for cars. #EndUSChildLabor 


It's 2024, but some #US legislators are trying to turn the clock back 100 years to bring back #ChildLabor. Be part of the movement to stop this. Write to your representatives & ask them to support the Campaign to #EndUSChildLabor!
