CHILD LABOR LAWS

The way LAW keeps us SAFE!

AGE: Comes Restriction

The minimum age to work legally is 14. To get a work permit you need to be 17 years of age. That includes home schooled minors and minors from out of state. Your hours are limited also. This restriction makes sure that our children in this society are safe and not so overwhelmed by work as they are still children. this also keeps them safe.
