WRITE TO STATE LEGISLATORS
IN WEST VIRGINIA

In West Virginia, there are two bills in progress.

  • HB 5159/SB 559: this bill removes the work permit system for 14-15 year-olds and all of the protections the system provides, and replaces it with far less stringent age certificates 

  • HB 5162: this bill creates a new 'Youth Apprenticeship Program' which bypasses the requirement to meet US Department of Labor standards, and which removes anyone on the program from hazardous work protections.

The letter below outlines objections to both, and you are able to insert your own personal experiences and messaging. The letter will be sent to your local representatives based on your address.
