Jobs for Kid

When looking for jobs for kids, you should also be researching about the Roth IRA:

kid roth ira handbook With the economy changes occurring in the Fall of 2008, allowances are being cut and more and more children are looking for employment. On December 15, 2008, Lisa W. Foderaro covered the issue in her New York Times article concerning Teenagers Feel the Crunch which shows how kids accross the nation are having to adjust to new economical situations.

Minimum wages vary by state

On thing Lisa Foderaro mentions in her article is that teens find they are competing with adults now looking for jobs. Any job, even lower paying will be acceptable for adults needing a temporary fix to being layed off. This makes it harder for the teens (and the adults as well, who are also competing now with a youthful, possibly more energetic applicant for a position).

One solution to avoid being layed off is going into business for yourself. With any business, start up takes time - so why not let that start up build slowly through the teen years, when teens are not totally dependent on the cash profit. These are the years where it will be ok if the teens job only shows a $500 profit for the year. Overtime, this will grow. All kids should consider this a possible path. Not all jobs for kids have to be flipping burgers or cashiers.

The resources on this page are to help not only teens and preteens, but kids of all ages find the path that is economically best for them.


Learning means earning when kids are working. Kids with job opportunities (whether it is out in the mainstream or if they are statring self-employment) benefit from:
  • Increased self-esteem & confidence from communicating with others
  • Understanding of responsibility (refilling machines)
  • Knowledge of financial accounting
  • Self-satisfaction of saving for college (Note: We also recommend contributing part of the earned income to a Roth IRA.)
