Yes, there are laws both federal and state that stipulate persons of specfied ages can or cannot work in certain business or areas of a business. For example, if someone who is under the state's legal age pertaining to alcohol and applies for a position in a food establishment where alchohol is served. Yes, if you're under 40, for the reasons Macky gave above. No, if you're over 40, because the law prevents discrimination based on age.
