New bill to stop Samoa child labour
29 jan. 2015 - RNZI.
A senior Samoa government offical is hoping a new bill will help stop children working illegally as street traders and on farms.
Currently, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 15 to work during school hours, but there are no laws covering any other time.
The acting Chief Executive of the Ministry of Women, Culture and Social Development, Louisa Apelu, says the government is still working on the bill's intricacies.
