In the US, you must be 14 to get a work permit from school, then you must have your job fill it out, then you must have your school sign it. If you need a job at 13 and can't wait, i wold suggest asking people for baby sitting jobs, and yard work jobs too. Things like raking leaves, mowing, and other jobs can pay quite a bit. If you feel up to it, have your "employer" sign a contract so that all services you preform must be payed for and that you will do things like mow on a regular basis for a set amount. This makes it so you can mow even when it isn't needed and still get payed.

In the UK, at 13, you can do most jobs you want, as long as you do not work before 07:00, and within an hour of the start or finish of school.

You must also get a permission form filled out by your school, usually by your Head of Year. If they consider the job to be inappropriate (eg dangerous), they can refuse to sign the form.

Without the form, anybody who employs you is breaking the law,

I don't actually know, but I'll have to find out soon, since it will be part of my job from September.

Your principle decides if you can get a job? Ridiculous.

It's only within limits - basically, if the job has the potential to harm you or your education, you can't do it. The job has to give you time to get enough sleep and have time to get an evening meal and do your homework at a reasonable time. (It's to stop things like a case we had last year where I actually found a child working on a building site half an hour before first lesson. He was helping load rubble into a truck. The rubble was being lowered several stories to him, in buckets. He had a condition that meant he has a very fragile skull, and he wasn't wearing a hard-hat. The man at the other end of the rope was his dad...)

Around here, the only stores that generally hire 13 y.o. are super markets as bag boys. Just give yours a call and see if they'd hire someone your age. If they will, go in and get an application.
