Proposed changes to child labor laws in the agriculture industry are raising concerns.

Those proposed rules are supposed to only impact hired workers and exclude kids on family farms or those with 4-H and Future Farmers of America.

For the most part, kids under 16 would not be allowed to operate power-driven machinery, but for the ones that could, they cannot use electronic communication devices like cell phones while operating the equipment.

They also would not be able to work on a number of different kinds of farms or with specific animals.
