Yes, a minor as young as 11 can work in Michigan. In Michigan a

work permit is obtained through the school and the Board of

Education. Check in your school office to find the person that is

in charge of that. Note also that the working hours are limited by

a cap of 48 hours of school and work a week. So if your school is

30 hours a week, you can only work 18 hours. The permit can be

revoked for bad grades or other reasons. Youth should also be aware

that if the parents ask, the employer is required to send the

paycheck to them, not the minor.
