Each state has their own laws regarding the legal working age of a minor. You may want to check the Secretary of State website for the state that you live in.

I worked at age 15 with a summer youth job for high school. It was temporary but I earned money for school clothes and bought my family a brand new Zenith 25 inch colored television.

How nice of you to think of your family and buy them a TV. Not many 15 year olds would do that sort of thing.
When I was in high school, the legal age to work was 16, and when I turned 16 I applied and got a job at Taco Bell. Not the greatest first job, but it did teach me responsibility and great life lessons.
