How Many Hours Can A 14 Year Old Work?

According to The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 14 is the minimum age which teenagers are allowed to work, but limited by work types and hours:

  • On a school day you may work outside school hours up to 3 hours per day and 18 hours per week, including Friday
  • When school is not in session you may work up to 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week
  • You may only work between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (except from June 1st through Labor Day you can work until 9 p.m.)

How Much Can You Earn at 14?

There is no one definitive answer to how much 14-year-olds can earn. It will depend on a number of factors, including the country they live in, their skillset and experience, and the type of job they are doing. In general, however, 14-year-olds should expect to earn less than adults. This is because they are often limited in the types of jobs they can do and may not have as much experience as older workers.

In the United States, for example, the minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. This means that a 14-year-old working a minimum wage job would earn $290 per week before taxes. Of course, some 14-year-olds may be able to find jobs that pay more than the minimum wage.
