Bill Approved Allowing Teens To Work Later

Republicans in the State Senate have approved a bill that would let businesses schedule under-16 workers later into the evening, all the way to 11 pm during the summer. Democrat Bob Wirch says it sends the wrong message to children and parents.

“Working hours have kids working right up to the curfew! There’s going to be curfew violations if they follow this bill working until 11 o clock!”

The bill is also opposed by labor organizations. It’s unclear when the Assembly will be voting on it.
