  • In your state, one must be at least 14. So she's old enough as far as the law is concerned.

    I was working in a shoe store at 15, then in a public library.

  • Babysitting is about it. Here in Virginia the legal age to work is 15 years and 6mos. My son is 16, and he was just hired at bestbuy. I'm so happy because he can buy his own school clothes/shoes this fall. He love nice expensive things my wallet cannot afford, so we took him out last month to complete some applications, and he scored big with bestbuy, and he get 20% off as an employee.
