Question

What companies hire at age 14?

I know most are 16+, but i've check and it is in fact perfectly legal.
I know Market Basket hires 14 year olds for check-out and bagging groceries.
But what about chains like Wal-Mart, Stop and Shop, Shaws, movie theartres, like Flagship, AMC, and stores, like JC Penny, Aeropostale, American Eagle, Old Navy, Claire's etc. I know some small businesses do, but there arent many near where i live. If you know of any companies with chains in Massachusetts, that hire 14 year olds, thats what i'm looking for. Thanks.
And, yes, i know thigns like babysitting, car washing, house sitting, and stuff like that is a good choice, but im looking for an actual employer.

You are correct. It is legal to work at age 14. The problem has been caused by the poor economy. Jobs that used to go to 14-year-olds are now being filled by 19 year-olds. That will change when things get better.

Of the companies you listed, none will hire at 14. The only ones have been Dairy Queen and Chick-fil-A.

The restrictions on 14 year olds in Mass. are lengthy. They can not work on a ladder. They can not work on hot grills. Not on certain machinery. They can't work at night. They can't work during school hours.
