A Washington state family that homeschools its seven children has moved to Idaho to escape child labor laws after being fined $30,000 for employing their teen-age sons in the family’s house-moving business. Father Jude Doty also was fined $100,000 for “unfair business advantage” on the theory he was able to underbid competitors because he doesn’t pay his children. In his account, Doty says the family lost their home and business as a result of the case.
