Today's hearing will focus on two issues.
The first panel will review the effect on the child labor provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act on Amish families. The Department of Labor has recently, in recent years, undertaken enforcement efforts within the Amish community which have had an adverse impact on their ability to provide their traditional means of training and employment of the Amish young people. In the Amish community, young people complete their classroom learning at the ages of 14 or 15 and progress to hands-on education and training, working with their families and others to acquire experience and skills in practical areas such as farming, carpentry, and homemaking.
It is my understanding that several sawmills in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana are now facing thousands of dollars in fines for allegedly violating child labor laws by employing workers under the age of Many of these cases are working their way through the appeals process. We will hear more about this from the first panel to testify today, which includes our colleague, Congressman Pitts, and two members of the Amish community, William Burkholder and Christ Blank.
The second panel will focus on H. Unfortunately, the Department of Labor, particularly in recent years, has stretched the original intent of the act and in some cases seems to have simply contradicted the law with new interpretations and regulations. A field hearing held in Pennsylvania last June by the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections highlighted a of the problems and the problem areas under the act and its regulations.
Today's hearing will review many of the same issues and more closely examine the provisions of H.
For example, the purpose of the limited MSPA reforms enacted during the last Congress was to provide agricultural employers with affordable insurance to cover vehicles used for transporting farm workers. However, regulations issued subsequently by the Department of Labor did not eliminate the problem of unaffordable transportation insurance. As a result, there are fewer safe means of transportation for the workers. This issue and others should be resolved by provisions in H.
In addition to the issue of costly vehicle insurance, there are other fog issues involving housing, t employment, and duplicative government inspections. Again, I want to welcome our witnesses and thank you for taking time to appear today to educate the subcommittee on these issues, and I turn to Looknig Owens for his statement. ❶Chairman and members of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee, I want to thank you for holding this hearing on an important issue, important to members of the Amish community who reside in over 20 States in this country.
I also want to welcome two of our colleagues who will testify: Congressman Pitts, who will appear in the first panel, and Congressman Canady, who will appear in the second panel dealing with the Migrant and Cruce Agricultural Workers Protection Act issues. Chairman, I respectfully request that the record reflect the desire of Members involved in this issue crucds have more timely responses from the Department of Labor.
While I appreciate the concerns that are being raised, I have very strong reservations regarding the employment of any children in hazardous work settings. As you know, the Amish people are a very committed, hard-working community which does not contribute to the social ills of our society. The alternative is to return to a market system that invites and encourages the vilest, most blatant exploitation of workers.
It is also important to remember that the Amish mills and shops are commercial enterprises competing with other non-Amish mills and shops.
The Amish view this work as part of their schooling, since they often accompany a parent or other relative or adult to a job and learn a vocation. In addition to the issue of costly vehicle insurance, there are other unresolved issues involving housing, crucs employment, forr duplicative government inspections. For example, the purpose of the limited MSPA reforms enacted during the last Congress was lkoking provide agricultural employers with affordable insurance to cover vehicles used for transporting farm workers.|Roommate is gone The roommate is gone for the week and I am looking for some for I don't get out much an a little shy but I am looking for a girl to hang out with send a replay with your and I crux get back to you.
