It's not about providing young people with work experience!

Don't let anybody tell you that the Sask. Party government's recent changes to the minimum employment age has anything to do with giving young people some work experience.

Because friends - that's just not what it's all about. It's about a government who is pandering to the demands of some of the worst employers in the province. Employers who pay such crappy wages, and who treat employees so badly - that practically nobody (other than a few teenagers) is prepared to work for them.

And all of this with no consultation, no public input, and virtually no consideration of alternative points of view. It's becoming a common indicator of how the Sask. Party government operates.

Check out the recent posting over on the "Owls and Roosters Blog" entitled: Brad Wall government lowers minimum age of employment to 15 without public debate or discussion; CFIB and Sask. Chamber applaud move, for more indepth analysis on this topic.
