Can an 11-year-old get a job?

Answer

In the United States as of 2014, it is illegal for 11-year-old children to be employed. Federal law sets the minimum working age at 14 and outlines employer restrictions that apply to employees under age 16.

Minimum working age and other restrictions for working minors are set by the Fair Labor Standards Act, as explained by the U.S. Department of Labor. The FLSA also prohibits minors from taking jobs in dangerous fields, such as heavy industry. There are further restrictions that specifically apply to individual industries. Furthermore, individual states may have distinct laws regarding underage labor with unique requirements and restrictions for minors who wish to get a job.
