“Last week, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed a bill making it a bit easier for teenagers to enjoy gainful employment. Predictably, the usual suspects piled on, accusing state lawmakers of sacrificing children to Mammon.

The move might not only fill jobs, it could also improve young Americans’ prospects for future prosperity.” (03/15/23)
