Can I get a job at age thirteen?

I’m thirteen, I live in the suburbs of Detroit, MI. I desperately want a REAL job that would get me paid at least $10,000 a year. I’ve heard of child labor laws but is there anything out there..or do you know anyone? I know modeling could get you extra money but what else?

And what I mean by real job is..not chores like taking out your neighbor’s garbage and stuff.

Answer #1

like you could get a job. your only 13. if you got hurt or something it would be that persons responsibilty and they would get a fine or sued. only three or four more years and then you can get a job.

Answer #2

looks like chores is your only money making job at 13. Your still to young for a lot of places to give you a chance, plus they could get into trouble for hiring you at that age. Hope you like babysitting and you have to earn their trust with their babies. Good Luck

Answer #3

Uhm No Hun I Dont Think There Is ;; 13 Is Kinda Young To Be Getting A Job! Maybe A Paper Route, Thats All I Could Say Somebody Of Your Age Could Get!

Answer #4

from what I’ve heard some modeling places offer 300$ a day

Answer #5

You’ll have to ck the laws in your area - may require a permit..some ideas:

Baby sitting (only for persons that are trustworthy) Paper route Dog walking Grocery store Lemonade stand Paint House number on street curb House sitting Message Delivery Pharmacy Delivery City, County, State and other government-run Youth Programs Vacation and Tourism spots Hotels/Resorts Parks and recreational areas Swimming pools, golf courses and campground facilities Day and summer camps Amusement/Theme/Entertainment parks Museums, Zoos and Aquariums Airport concession firms Childcare and Eldercare providers Health care facilities Business services (including) Moving and packing companies Pool and spa companies Lawn care and other maintenance companies Construction companies Movie theaters Fast food and restaurant establishments Ice cream parlors, juice bars Clothing and accessory stores Newspaper / Magazine Distribution

Legal Considerations: Not many people are aware that they break the law when they work without fulfilling the basic requirements that involve teenage work. So let us see, what this is actually. Note this is not an exhaustive list and hence for accuracy you should check with your local guardian or legal advisor (at school or at any social center). Also be aware the each State & Country may have different laws that cover teenagers working conditions.

Timings: Teenagers below 14 years old are usually not encouraged to work in offices. For those above 14 and above they should not be working at night. The legal hours are any time between 7 am to 7 PM ‘ of course ensuring that school is taken care of. Those between 16-19 years of age can be free to work as much and as long as they please. However, girls should always be wary and careful when working nights as crime increases at night. Work areas: Teenagers may work anywhere they can be engaged with the exception of places where they could endanger themselves or others, such as construction sites, repair sites or garages, chemical and other types of processing, mining, messenger jobs, warehousing, adult clubs and bars. Social security number: There are places where teens need a social security number to receive payment; Taxes: Most of the time teen jobs do not involve tax payments and need not have any dedication in the paychecks. However, you need to consult the local IRS to ascertain this. Each state and country has its own set of rules and what is valid in one may not be in another. Do not take anything for granted. Keep in mind that legal aspects are serious matters and you do need complication with the law. Check and be sure you fulfill all the legal formalities applicable for teenagers before you even apply for work. Ask the help of a responsible adult, such as your parents, teachers or relatives and seek out the correct answers - no such thing as a stupid question.

Wish you the best and always be alert, putting safety first !!

Answer #6

can get a job but if I where you I wudn’t get my hopes up kid

Answer #7

nope, try 16

Answer #8

13 years old? ten thousand a year? what weed are you smoking?

Answer #9

It’s incredibly tough to find a job at that age, but when I was 13 I got a job at a waterpark near us cleaning some of the kiddie pools. When I was 14 I got my lifeguarding license and started working for about $9,000 a year. I’m 17 now and I’m still working at that same waterpark but I’m an acquatics supervisor and I make like $16,000 a year. Next year I’ll make $20,000 doing a fun and easy job. I get to work with tons of cool people my age and I get free stuff and food. ^_^ But I have 2 jobs because when I turned 16 I got a second job at Pac Sun. (has tons of perks too!!) And that pays $15/hour. It is pretty hard finding a job but make sure you find something that you enjoy doing. No amount of money is worth putting yourself in misery so early in life, lmfao. As soon as you turn 16 you can get a better job at pretty much any store at your local mall. So start easy and work your way up. [:

Answer #10

I think it’s great that you want to work so hard but it’s unrealistic to aim for $10,000 in one year. That’s $200 a week. With school and homework, I can’t imagine you managing to work more than 15 hours a week Teenagers are usually hired at minimum wage for jobs in MacDonalds and Taco Bell, for example.

I think at your age, the only things open to you are going to be babysiting, paper routes and chores for neighbors.
