I am having much trouble writing the first chapter of my autobiography because it discribes the twenty-five foot long french fry cutter machine my brother and I were forced to opparate when we were eleven and twelve. It was very dangerous, and thus to be put to work on it violated Child Labor Laws. I don’t know how we did, how we survived. The psychological damage is incalculable.
At my doctors appointment on December 26th. I asked to see the therapist in residence. I told her the falling out with my daughter and grandson was over this machine, and Heather’s new lover, ‘Psycho Billy’. The Janitor makes her first appearance in this post. When Rena told me her father brutalized her and her brother, I understood she was more than my lover and muse. She was like a sister, but, she was something more.

The U.S. Department of Labor is the sole federal agency that monitors child labor and enforces child labor laws. The most sweeping federal law that restricts the employment and abuse of child workers is the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

FLSA restricts the hours that youth under 16 years of age can work and lists hazardous occupations too dangerous for young workers to perform. Enforcement of the FLSA’s child labor provisions is handled by the Department’s Wage and Hour Division.

Of course these jobs will go to the most needy of children – because the un-needy children won’t touch them! This is Scapegoating by a Master parasite, a Leach who was elected by the people, for the people, and uses his office influence to enrich himself – at the encpence of poor children – too!
