The bill eliminates a requirement that the state verify the age of children under 16 before companies can hire them.

As a parent of young people who would like to be able to make their own money I applaud this.

Young people having financial agency and child labour laws arent exclusive to each other. It’s about ensuring the safety of the child’s health and agency, alongside their civil rights while they pursue education and financial independence.

This comment is very concerning

that certainly isn’t what history shows, at least in North America. For the most part Unions did the work of getting kids out of the mines. While some union brothers may have been interested in safety, there evidence that it was about eliminating the competition from younger workers who had leas need of $$$ due to not having to support a family etc. As usual after the market has already generally made the switch, the government comes in and makes a law so they can claim the change in market was due to their regulation.
