Tends to be what happens in quite a few places, OP. As long as the pay is good, and the jobs not too difficult, I wouldn't really give it mind.

Just because someone is 15 does not mean they know nothing about the workplace. I started working 30-35 hours a week at the age of 13, and now I'm pushing 75 hours a week across 5 very different jobs. And yes. That IS what tends to happen pretty frequently at a couple of them!

just because labor laws were lax when you were a kid and the economy was stable enough for kids to pick up an odd job doesn't mean that the factors apply to this kid. Nowadays you need 3 years experience just to flip burgers.

#50 people like you piss me off. Some people actually do work from a very early age. For example, I have had a job since I was 8 helping out in a machine shop. Kids can get jobs in farms, family businesses, etc...

#58 or you can easily go out and pick up a construction job anywhere. The economy isn't that bad if you consider labor jobs, where you'll make more than flipping burgers.

1, i've never flipped burgers. I've worked in libraries, computer repair, phone centers, and i make a lot of spare money helping Game and Simulation programming majors from the colleges with their senior projects by writing scenarios, cleaning up code, and providing voice acting and sound editing if they need it. 2, not everyone is cut out for a labor job. half the reason I went into GSP myself is because my hips and right knee were wrecked in a hit and run in high school. I can get around well enough with the day to day stuff, but I can't be on my feet and/or knees for hours on end. 3rdly, I live in the Devils armpit where the summer high's can get over 120 on a really bad day, construction is a death sentence.

Well you do work for her, so what she assigns to you is your job.

I think it's the bosses list of tasks...I think OP said that a co-worker just explained after 2 months that the boss gives OP a list of tasks that are actually the bosses tasks.

Actually, we don't have enough information to know which is true. But why would the manager help the coworker do nothing all day?

If you are getting paid, they are your tasks. Nothing to moan about. I think we have all had lazy bosses in our lives. It is called privilege...when you reach a boss position, you may be able to designate yourself.

If she's getting paid for doing nothing, there is definitely something to complain about. And if she's in the United States, what she's doing is illegal.

You don't know that, and that doesn't even make sense.

actually tasks are divided by paychecks. for instance I get paid more at my job since I am a manager. therefore it is MY job to ensure inventory is properly counted, the store is always presentable, the doors are locked upon leaving and the safe is armed. I am also always in control of the money. the employees getting less than me don't need to worry about that. they just need to show up clean and with a good attitude, Make sure their products are correct and clean their areas. people getting paid more than me have even more to worry about. there is lazy boss and then there is pushover employee. if OP continues to allow her boss to give her all of her tasks then she will 1. never be promoted. why would the boss allow her to leave? 2. if she gets too good her boss could fear for her position and force OP to quit. 3. Never make the boss responsible for her own work or failure to perform her own duties.

It is actually not against the law a boss can tell you to do anything they want you to do. If your boss wants you to act as there personal assistant that is your job if the boss wants you to clean the bathroom everyday that is your job. If the boss decides to delegate all there responsibility to you that is your job as long as there work is getting done nobody cares.
