    Work Hard, Die Young - compiled by Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    Despite the recent outreach efforts by OSHA and worker safety groups to teen workers, it's summertime, and the dying is easy.

    New youth labour laws draw local criticism - Hinton Parklander, Alberta, Canada
    Even unions are chipping in with an opinion on this issue.

    "Putting young kids into the job site is a recipe for trouble," said Alberta CUPE president D'Arcy Lanovaz. "At a time when every WCB (worker compensation board) across the country is doing whatever possible to reduce accidents by young workers, the Alberta government is taking the opposite approach and putting, more and younger workers into potentially dangerous situations."

    He said the move will likely increase work place accidents. He added that Saskatchewan youth under the age of 16 are banned from working anywhere.

    "Once again, Alberta is moving in the opposite direction from the rest of the country," he said.
