Getting a Job on the Farm- Labor Issues for Young Farm Workers display will be available during the Farm Science Review,three-day event. The display will target teens younger than 16 looking for jobs in agriculture and cover the types of training they need to perform different tasks.
The display is also of interest to employers wanting to hire youth for agricultural jobs, agricultural education teachers and OSU Extension educators wishing to offer training on the topic.
The child ag labor display will be at the Firebaugh Building in OSU Central. Concerns with young people working agricultural jobs came to light last year when new federal child ag labor laws were proposed. While the laws did not change, what was learned from the experience is a lot of people didn't know the requirements. This display answers those questions.
