Now I'm Scared

Awhile back I posted some sarcastic stuff about balancing the budget on the backs of children, old people, disabled people and said that maybe we should go back to allowing people to starve to death, making old people live in poor houses, and having children work like my grandparents did (both of them went to work in factories at the age of 8).  Now I hear that Maine is considering amending it's child labor laws to allow businesses to pay anyone under the age of 20 $2.00 less than minimum wage.  Hmmm.  The law would also allow them to work more hours than they're currently allowed to work.  A cheap labor pool.  Great.  Progress.  Businesses will make more money.  This benefits us how?
