According to the current regulations, young people under the age of 18 cannot work after 11 PM. The Conservative Party (Høyre) and the Labor Party (AP) disagree on whether they should be allowed to work until midnight, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The Conservative Party proposes that young people aged 15 to 18 in summer jobs can work until midnight.
“Today, they have to stop working at 11 PM, and that makes no sense. Especially considering that our companies need workers more than ever before,” deputy leader of the Conservative Party, Henrik Asheim, told NRK.
Trine Lise Sundnes in the Labor Party’s parliamentary group does not support Høyre’s proposal.
“I think this is an exceptionally bad idea. Working hours for children and young people under the age of 18 are set so that the work does not hinder school attendance,” Sundnes noted.
