ok, this is great to know we have a mod that is our age. i too am 14, and i love doing tricks for people. but, i am very interested in resteraunt work. i wonder if the resteraunt could hire you but not pay you much, and just let the tips be your money. this way you wouldnt really be getting paid from them, and you would be collecting money, it sounds like a good idea to me.


I just read through this thread. I'll answer a few questions about Canada.

In Canada, you have to declare the tips you make, and pay taxes on them. Though nobody does. If you are paid under the table, and do not claim your income, you will owe the government money, including interest, and a large fine. If you get audited however. I don't beleive 14 year-olds get audited ever.

You can't have minors in bars, but in restaurants that serve alcohol, you can. If the waiter/waitress is underage, they get someone that's 18 or older to server the drinks that are ordered. But as you are a magician, this would obviously not be a concern.

Most organizations have a set minimum of age 16. So it depends where you work.

I'm 14 as well and work restaurants. It is illegal to perform at our age if alchohol is being served in our performing area (i.e. nightclubs, bars, or next to a bar). However, if you are just doing standard table hopping in a typical restaurant it is perfectly legal. Age really doesn't make all that much a difference if you carry yourself as a polite and professional entertainer. You have a better shot of getting a job at a restaurant at 14 with a good attitude than someone who doesn't act professionally with 10 restaurants under his or her belt and of the age of 25. It's a big decision to decide you are ready to work restaurants, so I wish you the best of luck. I see a lot of magicians who got lucky getting a job and don't know what they're doing. I hope you study well and thoroughly and don't end up like that.

Take care,
Andrew

you will get the permit at your school because it is required that your boss sign the permit
