Man accused of allowing children to work without food or water
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Labor Cabinet says a Indiana man violated Kentucky child labor laws by allowing minors to work twelve hour days, with minimal breaks or access to food and water.
The cabinet says Shawn Floyd employed twelve minors, seven of which were under the age of 14, and some as young as 12 years old in July 2019 in Bowling Green.
The cabinet says Floyd has also been charged with 12 counts of human trafficking by the Warren Commonwealths Attorney.
The Labor Cabinet served Floyd with its complaint during his arraignment on the human trafficking charges on Monday.
