These children are made for working

I was reading a government publication concerning child labor and came across an outline of approved work for nonagricultural workers under 14 years:
  • working for parents in non-hazardous jobs

  • working as actors

  • delivering newspapers

  • working casually (e.g., cutting grass, babysitting, chores)

  • working at home making wreaths composed of certain materials

Um, what was that last one? Huh? Making wreaths? WTF.

So this holiday season, all 13-year olds and younger can feel comfortable making wreaths in their homes across the nation. But only wreaths composed of certain materials! Got it?

At least this whole thing is not vague and is very important like so many other things in our government.
