Pass legislation that gets children out of hazardous work environments

Child Labour in British Columbia is alive and well. Since 2004, child labour standards have been seriously eroded, allowing kids as young as 12 to work up to 35 hours a week, even in work environments that are hazardous. It's time for government to take responsibility for the safety of children who work, rather than leaving it as the responsibility of the parent to ensure the workplace is safe and suitable for their children; restricting both the amount of hours children can work and then kind of work they are permitted to do. Please help families come first. Government needs to pass legislation that gets children out of hazardous and inappropriate work environments and the time for action is NOW!
