I live in cottage grove Minnesota and I was wondering are there any jobs for a 13 year old like me? I need money for a phone and my parents dont have money to give to me so I need enough to be like $30-$40 a month perhaps?
and at 13 you dont have a lot of options
and you wont get anything that pays well either untill your older
most cafes and fast food chains wont take you untill your about 14 and 9 months
but do ask the place first because its different in some countries
When You Are 13 Or Younger . . .
You can deliver newspapers.
You can work as a baby-sitter.
You can work as an actor or performer in motion pictures, television, theater or radio.
You can work in a business solely owned or operated by your parents.
You can work on a farm owned or operated by your parents.
However, parents are prohibited from employing their children in manufacturing, mining, or any other occupation declared hazardous by the Secretary of Labor.
When You Turn 14 . . .
You also can work in an:
amusement park, or
gasoline service station.
You generally may not work in:
communications or public utilities jobs,
construction or repair jobs,
driving a motor vehicle or helping a driver,
manufacturing and mining occupations,
power-driven machinery or hoisting apparatus other than typical office machines,
public messenger jobs,
transporting of persons or property,
workrooms where products are manufactured, mined or processed, or
warehousing and storage.
In addition, you may not work any other job or occupation declared hazardous by the Secretary of Labor.
Different rules apply to farms, and individual States may have stricter rules.
Do you NEED a phone so you can text your friends, or do you WANT a phone so you can text your friends?
Right now you don't NEED a job, but its good to have one for experence and whatnot. I would say look for something that needs doing, and offer to do it for cheap, and do a good job at it too.
GO door to door like I did and ask for odd jobs, I ended up getting a 10$ per hour job at 14 and made about 100 per week!!!
p.s. work for an older person its much easier
