How can I get a job at 14/15? Also, how do I get a workers permit?

How can I get a job at 14/15? Also, how do I get a workers permit? Topic: Writing as a productive skills
July 18, 2019 / By Jasmin
Question: I'm 14, and I'll be 15 in a few months. I get straight A's and do swim team. I want to have some extra money to spend on stuff because my only source of money is family near the holidays. The only place I know that hires 14/15 year olds in VA is Kroger, but I've heard that it is kind of gross, but I really don't mind as long as I don't get sick. I need a job that I can work at on weekends and during next summer with a somewhat flexible schedule (in case my swim team delays a swim meet or my parents decide to go visit family for a weekend or something like that). I don't have the greatest memory or people skills, but I can be a productive worker. I obviously can't drive, so I would have to have my parents drive me or I ride a bike. Should I work at Kroger? Are there any other places that hire 14/15 year olds? Also, how do I get a workers permit and apply for a job?

Apply to Kroger. Ask ther places near you if they hire below age 16 - most will say no, but you might find some that do. You'd get a work permit from your school Your bigger problem though is how you define flexiable, Having sa job doesn't mean you work when you don't have something better to do.. They'd write a schdule a week or so ahead of time, and aren't going to be flexible if something comes up after that. And even before the schedule is written, if they need you, you're expected to work not ask ot be off. If you have a regulr time that you have something else, like swin team practice on Tuesday night or something, tell them that before you take the job if they offer you a job. Even then, if they need you thaat night, you might have to still work.

Eunice Originally Answered: Our Grocery workers union has called a Strike Vote for Albertsons workers?
Without knowing what both sides are offering, it's hard for me to provide you with an exact recommendation on how to vote. However, a strike vote does not mean that if you vote in favor of it that there will automatically be a strike. All this does is authorize the union leadership to call a strike if it's warranted should negotiations with the company come to a halt. Union leaders use this as leverage to try and get more out of the company during negotiations. Here's a recent article about the issue, and you'll see points made from both sides about why/why not this is necessary. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-gr... You should vote for what you feel is in your best interest.
Eunice Originally Answered: Our Grocery workers union has called a Strike Vote for Albertsons workers?
This is a difficult call, because we don't have very much information about the strike vote. This is a very personal decision. There are many factors that would place into this, such as how loyal are you to the company? How many years have you worked there? Do you like your work? Can you obtain similarly satisfying employment elsewhere? More factors include: Can you afford to strike and possibly be without pay for a long period of time? Would Albertson's be able to hire substitute workers easily? If you are truely torn between striking or not, are you permitted to abstain from voting? I wish you the best of luck in your decision.

I'd suggest you make it clear to whoever interviews you that your personal and social life comes first and the job second. Generally it is understood a job depends on employees that can be counted on to adher to the employers needs, not the employee needs.

McDonald's hires at that age. Go ask to speak to the manager at the nearest McDonalds to find out what the requirements are. You WILL have to have your parents' permission.

Belita Originally Answered: Do internships need workers disability ( workers compensation) if not paid?
No, because you are a VOLUNTEER. So you do not get covered under workers comp. Workers comp not only replaces your pay, but would replace your pay from a second job, if you were disabled. More importantly, it covers your medical bills, if you're hurt at "work". Your mom needs to call the agent that writes the rest of her business insurance. She needs to get that agent to write a letter, stating that she has no workers comp, and isn't required to carry it, and as an unpaid intern, you don't qualify for workers comp benefits in your state. You will not be able to fight this alone. You will need her agent to write this letter for you. For online research, search out Michigan Workers Compensation Board.
