    i second that motion, but let's call it serious, reliable, dependable help
     
  3. The only problem with your suggestion is: labor laws in each state are different. How could yo sugest something that applies to Califonia, but not New York State.

    SEASONAL JOBS USUALLY DO NOT APPLY. EXAMPLE, JUST THIS PAST YEAR, IN MISSOURI THEY PASSED A LAW ALLOWING 13 YEAR OLDS TO DO LAWN WORK.
    BUT TO BE COMPLETELY LEGAL, IT WOULD BE SMART TO CHECK THE LAWS OF YOUR STATE, BUT I WOULD BET THAT THEY DON'T APPLY AS IF YOU WORKED IN CONSTRUCTION OR SALE.
