Don’t Eliminate Regulations Protecting Teen Workers’ Lives

Target: Alexander Acosta, United States Secretary of Labor

Goal: Don’t eliminate life-saving protections that guarantee teens in the workplace are safe.

The Trump Administration wants to eliminate some child labors laws, which will undoubtedly lead to the deaths of hundreds of teenage workers. The government must end this sabotage of workers’ rights.

The Trump Administration wants to roll back Hazardous Occupation Orders (HOs), which prohibit teenagers from working dangerous jobs in meat packing plants, on constructions sites, and more. HOs have saved thousands of lives.

Sign the petition to demand the Trump Administration keep HOs in place. Teenage workers must be protected. We cannot find our nation stepping back in time to when our major corporations thrived on the blood, sweat, and tears of child laborers.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Acosta,

For over a century, America has ensured the sweatshops, workhouses, and mills of the past no longer end the lives of children. However, you wish to eliminate all the progress made by allowing children to work in dangerous conditions where the threat of death is always present.

I demand you keep regulations in place that protect child and teen workers and allow them to live and thrive. Do not roll back HOs and put the lives of thousands at risk.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
