: They allow child labour in Australia then.

The legal age in Australia to be employed is 14 yrs 9 months. My daughter was hired at that age and as she had been warned by friends, was given shifts on days that attracted penalty rates because she was being paid the lowest rates. Are you trying to be sarcastic? I don't understand your comment.
