The Federal government sets specific labor laws, including those about child labor. But the states can put their own laws in effect, as long as they do not contradict the Federal Laws. Most states regulate the hours a child can work and the ages they can get a work permit.

The US Department of Labor is the Federal Government and oversees the Federal laws regarding labor. Labor laws do differ from state in many issues, such as Child Labor laws (work permits, minimum age to enter the work force).
