Farm labor: Children in the fields - CBS News

Note the part of this story that includes a tomato farmer in NC who says that he employs a lot of young teenagers to pick his crop.

I would thinkt that a station that calls itself "North Carolina Public Radio" would be doing several things.

One, reporting more about this practice so we can all understand it better.

Perhaps diverting resources to do this instead of asking listeners to tell the station what they think the Civil War legacy in NC is.

At the VERY least, I'd put a link to this story on the WUNC site and ask for comment about the story and about what WUNC might do to add to the coverage of the issue, again, so we all understand better.
