Student jobs at risk: WA CCI

A large number of school students could lose their part-time jobs after Fair Work Australia ruled that young people can't work shifts less than three hours long.

We are denying young Australians the one of their basic rights - the right to work. This is burocracy gone mad! I thought the labour government was about protecting the worker not denying them the right to work. In the Pilbara the children do not get home from school until around 4 pm. Assuming they go straight to their after school job they would have to work until 7pm at night an then be up at 6am to get ready for school. That is returning 18 century child labour hours of work - a 12 hour day for children is ridiculous.

Who or what is 'Fair work Australia'? Is it another one of the Labor Governments hasty concocted committies? Making waves, without consulting affected people? From what I have noticed around the place, if students are not happy with the job, they will find another out of their own accord. They do not need some 'busy body' to interfere!! Interfering to their detriment, as they now may/will lose their job altogether. We are regulated enough. If both parties are happy why interfere? LEAVE THEM ALONE!
