    WCB mounts campaign to inform, protect younger workers By GREG YOUNGER-LEWIS, Nunatsiaq News, Canada
    Terry Cameron, chief safety inspector for the WCB in Nunavut, said young workers are often putting themselves in dangerous situations because they're too eager to please their bosses.

    He said youth need to be taught their rights in the workplace, which include the right to sufficient training, and the right to refuse an assigned task.
