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.
