Can I get a job for easy money to help my Mom out?

Is there a job that I can get that does not get in the way of my school and gets me a fair paycheck?

Answer #1

There’s a really cool idea if you’re in the right kind of neighborhood - and like dogs :-)

Someone I know walks dogs in the afternoons for people who work but their dogs still need the exercise. For a pre-set amount of money they walk the dogs 2, 3, or 5 times a week (assuming the family is at home on the weekend). It’s healthy for both the dog and the walker, it’s sure money, and the walker controls what time they walk and how long. Some dogs are fine walking together so they get paid double for the same walk sometimes.

Another idea is after-school kid-sitting for two or three neighborhood kids until Mom ‘n Dad get home from work. Me? I’d rather walk the dog LoL

Maybe this will get your thinking going … It doesn’t have to be flippin’ hamburgers and dunkin’ fries, that’s for sure!

Answer #4

Do you live near a new housing development ? Around here there are jobs for people to just hang out on the corner holding signs that say “Model Homes”, etc – so it’s weekends only and they make about $10/hr here. Good luck!

 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 !!
