How old do you have to be to work as general labor in construction?
Hi there, For the most part depending on where you are located
the average age of a general laborer in about 16yrs old. That is
the basic age for a person to begin in this field unless they have
the ability and the opportunity to start with a family member, i.e.
your father or uncle, etc. Now most construction companies or
contractors will most likely be looking for someone that would be
very driven and can handle quite a bit of physical labor thus being
the age of 16yrs old or older. Just some general imput for ya.
