In backing GOP position on child farm labor, Mercury supported a lie

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
The Mercury editorial of April 29 nods approvingly at the decision of the U.S. Labor Department to reconsider regulatory changes covering child labor in agricultural settings. The editorial includes statements from various Republican officials noting that the decision assures that “our rural way of life can continue for another generation,” which was the keynote of a well-orchestrated Republican  campaign against the proposal.
