Shooter's Comments:

There is talk about changing child labor laws that would effect kids who work on some family farms. I let Samuel Lawrence, 14, talk about the work he does around his family farm, and I shot the video while he did his chores after school.

It was interesting to see how the farm was set up and what his parents have done to make the work environment as safe as possible.
