Increase Child Employment Rights

This petition had 42 supporters

Would you want to be paid under minimum wage of $15 an hour as an adult?

Would you be okay with not having a say about your rights as an employee?

Would you like to be working in hard labour for the bare minimum price? How would you feel?

Child Employees under the age of 16 are being exploited for their work and being paid unfair wages. As there is no legal pay or right requirements for children under the age of 16years, working conditions can become tough. Working long and hard days with minimal rewards are influential on a child's overall well-being and majorly affects our future generations. 

These children are not necessarily working in these conditions for their own benefits and 'pocket money' but to help their families and contribute to the finances at home. 

If you agree that we as a nation need to increase the rights for child employees then sign this petition and help us make a difference!

Children have rights too!
