Do you know what "Labor Laws" are. These are laws to protect the rights of workers in "America". Especially those who work hard labor. Once again this includes the employer breaking the law not only with lower than minimum wage income, but no overtime to cover, breaks, "fair wage", benefits, etc. This reminds me of the way hitler treated the jews enslaving them as slave workers.
Check out the difference between ag labor laws and everything else. And they do not get lower than minimum. The work piece work during harvest and do quite well. They also have income tax withheld, workers comp and social security. They have guaranteed breaks, the Mexican roach coach rolls into the field and they all break for grub. The workers are government regulated just like most jobs.

When I worked in Ski Resorts, the law said, overtime after 60 hours not 40.

Agriculture labor laws had many exemptions and exceptions in it. With that, the payment agreements could varied from, the type of work( field or livestock) the type of crop, the type of land, working conditions,ect, but it mostly all came down to "staight commission" wich was also a violation.



Which "ski resorts"? any in Mi.?

Nothing in Michigan, nothing with less than 1700 vertical. Tahoe area.

Funny thing, I just noticed my ranking is going down, somebody is giving me negative points. Boy, I bet that part of the Constitution that talks about free speech just pisses them off.

One reason the Michiganers were so into ski jumping is that the ski hills were not too exciting. If you know you will live through the experience, why bother doing it?
