It depends on local laws. Here in my state, a minor CAN work, but the minimum age is 14, they can only work during non-school hours and can only work a few hours a week, 18 or… less, can't work later than 9 pm, and can only work non-hazardous jobs. For minors 16-17, the regulations are slightly different. (edited slightly, looked up the exact law).

A bus boy typically doesn't make much money, but there are certainly exceptions. Say the bus boy had a second job owning Microsoft, he would make a lot of money.
In the late 19th century, busboys were originally known as "omnibuses", a term which came from the Latin "omnibus," meaning "for all." "Omnibus" was a popular word in the 19th… century with a variety of uses, having first been applied to the large public horse-drawn coaches which marked the first appearance of urban mass transit. The motorized descendants of these omnibuses are known today, of course, as "buses." While busboys of the period may or may not have ridden to work on buses, they were known as "omnibus boys" or "omnibuses" themselves because their job was to do anything and everything that might be useful in the restaurant. "Omnibus" in this restaurant sense first appeared in 1888, and the first written example of the shortened form "bus-boy" has been traced to a 1913 issue of "The Industrial Worker" although the word was almost certainly in use long before then.
Chambers gives definition of "etymology" as: the science or investigation of the derivation and original signification of words. So "etymologically" is an adverb meaning… that word(s) are being used in their original sense, rather than what they may have come to mean in more recent times. A good example is "presently", which used to be used (by Shakespeare for example) to mean "at present", whereas now it usually means "in a little while".
