According to this report released in June by Human Rights Watch, thirteen- to sixteen-year-old children are working 70 and 80-hour weeks in American fields and orchards under threat from heat illness, pesticide poisoning, injuries, and lifelong disabilities. The 112-page report documents these conditions -- both statistically and in the first person, reviews the lax laws that govern farmworkers in the US, and examines the racial dimension of the issue (the vast majority of farmworkers being Latino). The report conclusively illustrates that such occupational abuse of children doesn't only occur in so-called Third World nations.
