Current laws forbid children from earning wages from their expertise. It doesn't matter if they are using the money to save for their future education or to live out their dreams such as Tallan "T-Man" Latz who loves to play his guitar as evidenced in the video below. He is seven years old, so he cannot legally be compensated for playing the guitar or even play in traditional establishments of business. He has a gift that people wish to compensate him for, therefore his talents have become an enemy of the State. When you factor in all the various levels of federal, state, and local laws it is a complex web of absurdity. It is about time we repeal these ridiculous laws.
