<p>The government has noted a significant increase in the number of young people on the labor market, and consequently, an increasing number of accidents involving them. . To confirm his findings, he therefore requested a report from the Labor and Workforce Advisory Committee (CCTM). </p>
<p>The report recommends that the general age for admission to employment be set at 14 years. The work would then be limited until the age of 16. </p>
<p>They would be prohibited from working more than 16 hours a week during the school year. A maximum of 10 hours could be worked from Monday to Friday. This would exclude holidays and lay weeks. </p>
