That's a shitty way to start out, OP, but don't let it deter you from trying again. You'll find a job.
That was their screw up, not yours. Don't let it deter you trying to be a responsible teenager :).
Am I the only one thinking age discrimination?? It's a long process to sue, but you could at least talk to someone higher up.
That's only for the USA #11, the whole world doesn't have that law, and since the location isn't listed for this FML, we shouldn't assume. Where I live, anyone 18+ can have a discrimination case if they are fired or unfairly treated because of their age. Minors aren't allowed to bring age discrimination cases though, because sometimes discrimination against them is necessary for safety and experience reasons.
Depends on the job. High schoolers have strict schedules. If I am looking for a waitress to work the weekday lunch rush, a high schooler can not work that shift. If my retail store is open 9-5 a high schooler could not work the whole day. The business just has to justify why a high schooler would be unsuitable for the role.
@ #24 it could also involve the distribution or serving of alcohol which is illegal until 18 (in USA, age differs per country, I assume), or selling tobacco. Some stores don't want to hire until you're of age to sell these things because it's easier than constantly needing to send someone to do that part of the job. all your reasoning is correct too, but besides hours, laws are issues. Some machinery has restrictions as well.
What was the job? Also, just go for the work that involves labor. You'll almost always get hired and you'll sleep amazing at night. Your young, so unless you do something stupid it won't really affect you in the long run, negatively at least.
