In her purse, Vicky Bradshaw carries a snapshot of a 9-year-old girl holding a sharp knife and smiling into the sun against a backdrop of grapevines. The knife, says Bradshaw, is for cutting grapes. "And look," she adds, "she's wet her pants because there weren't any toilets for the field workers." Bradshaw--California's labor commissioner--enforces laws that regulate child labor, unpaid overtime and minimum-wage violations, among other things.
