WATCH: Gov LePage Puts the Kids to Work (Cartoon)

Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week’s animation, Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) is at story time, teaching the kiddies all about the good ol’ days and his plans for turning back the clock on child labor laws. The recently proposed legislation would extend the number of hours a child can be required to work and lower the pay for children below the minimum wage. —The Editors
