  • 13 too young to work? Florida

    Can I legally apply for a job in a deli, using a slice machine and handling meat products? How many hours/week? What documentation do I need? Thank you

    "No minor under 18 years of age, whether such person’s disabilities of non-age have been removed, shall be employed or permitted to work in the hazardous occupations listed below. ... Operating power-driven meat and vegetable slicing machines"


    Past that, it appears that 13 years is too young to work at all acording to both Florida and U.S. law.

      Nope - they would get in trouble if they hired you & it's too dangerous.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
