When the Law Looks Stupid - Kids Can't Help Grandmother At Family Store
by Michael Fox
Child labor laws are a serious matter, but when stories like Labor Officials Crackdown On Grandma's Helpers appear it can make people wonder where common sense went. According to the Chicago NBC affiliate, Illinois labor officials have said that two granddaughters who helped their grandmother out at her second hand store by sweeping the floor and occasionally washing the windows in return for candy, can't be paid, even in candy. Glad that those officials had their priorities straight.
