FSIN Concerned About Working Age Changes

Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Vice-Chief Glen Pratt took time at the FSIN legislative assembly on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation yesterday to voice his concerns over the province’s decision to allow 15-year-olds to work.


Pratt worries some First Nations kids who have bad grades will drop out for the lure of cash.


He says there should be a caveat to the new rules that in order to get a job, a 15-year-old needs to stay in school.


Pratt says he will talk more with the government about this issue.
