Full Answer

Each company has different rules, many of which are based on government regulations and general labor laws. There are restrictions on how many hours a week a 15-year-old can work, because most kids at this age are still in school. There are also curfews on most jobs for the same reason.

Amusement parks have a variety of jobs available to younger kids for lower pay. Water parks hire lifeguards, line monitors, maintenance workers and crews who set up and take down equipment for events. While these jobs usually pay less, they give the opportunity to move up later in the company if hard work is proven.

Fifteen-year-olds with existing skills can train others. If they are already skilled in musical instruments, choreographed dance, acting, advanced math, cooking or cleaning, they can pass this training on to others while earning money for their knowledge. Private tutoring is often sought by parents for younger children who need help with school subjects and lessons.

    What is the Dunlop theory of industrial relations?

    A:

    The Dunlop theory of industrial relations states that the industrial system is comprised of three distinct parts: management organizations, workers and government agencies.

The theory was created by sociologist John Dunlop in 1958.
