    Birth. However they are some serious restrictions in place until you are 16. Most nonperformance jobs will not hire you if you are under 16.

    Legally, you may not work a day of you live if you can afford it in California. Or you can start working as early as you like. Working to earn money is a different thing. I would say you should be 16-17 to be hired legally.

    Under 18 you need a permit.

    You never HAVE to, but it's a good option if you want to support yourself instead of sponging off someone else.
