Today, I had a job interview with an environmentalist organization. I got the job, my FIRST job, a great first job doing something I am passionate about. An hour after the interview was over, they called me back and asked if I was 18. I'm 17, and unemployed again. FML
taylrrina tells us more :
OK! On the form they DID ask if i was legally able to work in the US and if I was 21 or over (for driving purposes only, this was not a requirement for the job), but no where did it ask if i was 18. I brought my resume to the interview, and had i not given them this resume saying I was a current student at my high school and Running Start, they would not have asked if I was 18 or not. and to those scoffing about my greener practices and being excited about this job-- this was a great job making $9-$14/hr, anybody getting their first job would love to make $14/hr starting! it really did suck day of, i was supposed to go in the next day for training.' but i have another interview this coming week and life goes on :)

it matters because of technical child labor laws, as a 17-year-old, she is not a full, legal adult yet.

pfft, environmentalism. sure the world is screwed up, but we need to make small changes for any change to happen. trying to convince people to 'go green' or 'environmentally friendly' don't work if there is no profit and/or too costly. This is why hippies, environmentalists and god-damned animal rights activist's piss me off because they don't understand human psychology and economic concerns, instead, they try to bully people into it.
