Take Action
in Kentucky


In Kentucky, there are two bills in progress.

  • SB 128 "Youth employment programs": this bill establishes work programs for 12-13 year-old children in the non-profit sector. This could set a precedent that enables other sectors to engage 12-13 year olds.

  • HB 255 "Employment of minors": this bill prevents the State Labor Department from setting any laws stronger than federal standards, which Kentucky - and almost every other state - is currently free to do.

The letter below outlines objections to both, and you are able to insert your own personal experiences and messaging. The letter will be sent to your local representatives based on your address.
