There are well thought out reasons for child labor laws. Ultimately, it's too easy for employers to mistreat these kids. I have every understanding for the occasional accidental violation, but that doesn't appear to be the case here. For every high achiever that saves for, and goes to, college, there's five kids that skip school and don't graduate because they think they can make a career of it. The simple fact is, no adult will put up with the crap at those jobs for what they pay.
