Child labor laws may help save thousands of jobs

A child labor law passed in 2017 could save thousands more jobs for children working in hospitality, agriculture, and other sectors, according to a study published Tuesday.

A bill passed in May 2018 to limit child labor to 15 hours a week by 2025 was aimed at helping those working in these sectors.

Now, the study finds that states that adopt a minimum wage law may also see a boost in child labor workers.

“We found that the state minimum wage increase could significantly improve the employment prospects of child labor employees,” study author and University of Florida economist Jennifer Shasky said in a statement.

“The bill passed by the states that have passed minimum wage laws could have a significant impact on child labor employment.

These results suggest that minimum wage legislation can help reduce child labor.”

The authors, a team of researchers from the Florida Institute of Technology and the University of Miami, looked at minimum wage and child labor laws in 20 states that were in the process of adopting them in 2018.

The researchers looked at data on child employment and child labour from a national dataset of employers in the US that has tracked child labour since 1991.

The authors found that states with higher minimum wages have seen a slight increase in child labour employment.

However, they noted that it was difficult to know whether the effect of a minimum wages increase was due to increased child labour or whether it was due, in part, to higher wages.

“Although we are not able to determine the effect on child labour, the results suggest a positive effect for minimum wage increases on child working,” the researchers wrote in their study.

“While there are many ways to address child labour in a nation, our findings suggest that it is best to aim for a minimum minimum wage.”

A study from 2016 showed that children in the United States had a median hourly wage of $8.30 in 2016.

That is down from $13.65 in 2016, according the authors.

However a recent study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that child labour was one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the country.

The research found that children were working on average 7.6 hours per week, while the median hourly pay for a full-time job was $18.80.

Child labour has been an issue for decades, but it has taken on new urgency after child labourers were arrested in the mid-2020s, many for the first time in the history of the country, for alleged child labour.

Many states have passed laws that ban the exploitation of children, but some states have also enacted laws that prevent employers from discriminating against children, or taking them into unpaid labour.

A number of states, including the US, are currently debating minimum wage hikes.

Some have proposed raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

The Trump administration has proposed a plan to raise the minimum to $12 an hour by 2021.

The White House has also been supportive of raising the federal minimum wage, as well as state minimum wages.

The minimum wage is currently set at $7.25 an hour, which is $1.25 higher than the federal poverty line.

“In our paper, we show that the higher minimum wage would help reduce the number of children working as child labourer workers in US and globally,” Shasko told Business Insider in an email.

“Our findings suggest it is important to consider the effect a minimum-wage increase on child workers may have on the broader economy.”

The report also suggests that states could benefit from a minimum pay law that also protects workers from the economic consequences of child labour if their employers are found to be abusing the system.

The study found that a higher minimum minimum pay would increase earnings by 0.3 percent, which the authors say is enough to lift millions of families out of poverty.

“This finding is especially significant given the high rate of child working in our dataset,” Shachky said.

“For every $1 that an employer pays for child labour at $8 per hour, they earn $3 less, which has a large effect on the bottom half of US households.”

In the study, Shasksays that the minimum-pay increase is likely to increase child labour’s earning potential by about $1,500 a year in the 2020s.

The higher minimum pay could also increase child employment by as much as 2.7 percent, or by $2.5 billion in the 2030s, the researchers write.
