Should Kids Under 18 Be Working With Pesticides? The EPA Needs to Hear From You Now!
As part of big changes to the Worker Protection Standards that regulate workplace pesticide rules, the US EPA is proposing a minimum age of 16 for youth to work as pesticide handlers (except on their own family's farm).
Toxic Free NC believes that 18 should be the minimum age to mix, load or apply hazardous pesticides on farms.
Do you agree? Tell the EPA!
