An interview with Frank Gasperini, executive vice president of the U.S. National Council of Agricultural Employers is presented. When asked about the possible effect of the updated child labor laws on children working in farms, he refers to the government's approval to allow proposed new rules as the result is still uncertain. He believes that farm labor shortage will get worse as their will be less Mexican immigrants due to their stabilizing economy.
