Victorian values

Ah, the sweet joy of family-friendly entertainment: American Idol, giving young folks a chance at stardom, then setting them on a live show circuit where child labour laws might be seen as something of an encumbrance.

Nineteen Touring LLC has just been fined for 16 violations of child labor laws in New York State. The company allowed 17 year-olds Jordin Sparks and Sanjaya Malakar appear in the show without bothering themselves getting proper permits.
