Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich said that New York City’s public school custodians, who clean and repair schools, should be fired and poor kids should take their jobs to earn money and learn the value of work. He argues that this would help stop poverty. Although Child Labor Laws prevent children younger than 14 from working unless they are helping their parents, babysitting or have a newspaper route, Gingrich has called these laws “truly stupid.” What do YOU think?
