We'll show you some of the popular locations to look in order to make money.

How can a 15 year old make money?

So how much should you expect to make working at jobs at 15 year olds? That is a good question. Legally all employers must pay you at least minimum wage. The federal minimum wage in America right now is $7.25 per hour.

This means if you work 20 hours per week (between after school hours and on the weekend) you would earn $145 for the week before taxes are taken out. Federal, state, and local taxes usually amount to about 25 percent of your check so you would probably take home approximately $110 if you're lucky.

Many teens age 14 and 15 overlook the importance of volunteering. They only see it as a waste of time or free labor, but it is more than that. When you volunteer you gain work experience as well as an opportunity to gain a reliable reference that you can use for your future employment efforts. Who knows? If you are an excellent worker they may even older you a paying position with their organization.
