Bonnie Livermore is 29-years-old. After high school, in 2005, she immediately went to college.

"I didn't really know what I wanted to do, so I chose a liberal arts degree and it didn't really work out for me so I stayed with my current job and I'm still there today."

Over the course of thirteen years at her restaurant job she's worked her way from crew member to general manager. Along the way, she was exposed to hands-on stuff, like maintenance work, a little electrical, even fixing the grills.

New federal rules aim to protect farm workers from the risks associated with exposure to pesticides. Advocates in New York are applauding the changes.

Now children under 18 will not be allowed to handle pesticides. Adult farm workers will have to be trained each year on how to protect themselves from the chemicals used around them. They used to be trained every 5 years.

It’s been 23 years since the Environmental Protection Agency updated its standards.
