On April 18, 1975, the House Subcommittee on Agricultural Labor heard testimony regarding H.R. 632 which would establish procedures for the Secretary of Labor to waive the child labor provisions of the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act for employment in agriculture of children under 12 years of age. Several conditions would have to be met before the Secretary could grant such a waiver. The waiver itself would require that: employment be outside of school hours, the children be local residents commuting daily to work on the farm from their permanent residence, and the children not be employed for more than 13 weeks between June 1 and September 15 under the waiver and in accordance with other terms and conditions set by the Secretary to protect them. Testimony was heard from representatives of the: U.S. Department of Labor, Migrant Legal Action Program, National Child Labor Committee, Child Labor Branch of the Wage and Hour Division (Department of Labor), United Farm Workers, and American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO).
