Reminds me of a thing I heard about recently. Family restaurants and
staying competitive in areas with high minimum wages.

Apparently children working in a family owned business are not covered
by any employment law. And neither are business owners. So make the
parents, their siblings, cousins whoever (I think they all do have to be 
"family" for this to work) partners in the restaurant and
all their children can work for whatever hours at whatever pay. As long
as they still get to school and aren't considered abused, of course. If 
they want to stay in the business once they turn 18 make them a partner.

Not a lawyer so I may have that wrong but that's how I understood the 
                 Knowledge is Power -- Power Corrupts
                         Study Hard -- Be Evil
