Depressing to say this, but down in the remote fishing village I used to live, during herring and lobster season kids were and still are brought into the sheds to help out.
They string herring and bait pockets getting paid 10 cents/piece.
It's only for the summer, and when the November lobster season hits, highschool boys *voluntarily because they want the christmas money* go on the boats to help during the first week.
The girls stay in the sheds and bait the pockets, and little kids go in and help after school.
So as depressing as it is, there is still child labour going on in North America. Rural fishing villages, Rural farms...if a kid's old enough to stand, the kid's old enough to earn his/her keep......
