Newt’s ‘Job Killing’ Idea

I’m surprised this issue hasn’t raised more red flags with unions.  Maybe I just missed them.

But if Newt had his way and children were allowed to work ’4 or 5 hours’/day, adult workers would soon lose their jobs to sub-minimum-wage kids.  The low-cost competition for menial work would drive down wages and benefits for those still employed.

The last thing we need is a hair-brained scheme that puts kids to work and replace adults.  Many janitors (and other low-wage occupations) are represented by SEIU and other unions.  Where are they?
