I'm sure they can, but I can see repercussions from it
If that income is supplementing the parent's income and they refuse them the whole family goes without. They could also get in trouble with their family

Passing the buck

In response to the report, Phillip Morris International (PMI) said it would broaden its internal monitoring effort to visit all contracted farms in the US. PMI further stated that “it did not agree with Human Rights Watch’s recommendation to extend restrictions on children working to all stages of the tobacco crop.”

Altria Group, the parent company of three US tobacco companies, including Philip Morris USA, said the HWR recommendations are “counter to current farming practices in the US” and “at odds with certain communities where family farming is a way of life.”

Other major cigarette manufacturers, including British American Tobacco and Reynolds American, stressed that the children were not in their direct employ, effectively diffusing responsibility down the supply chain of outsourced labor.

Those names sounded Hispanic imo. Now you know Becky and Bip ain't the majority of the ones out there. That would be horrible.Stern Smile
