as the smell of fresh bread ever been so enticing, you contemplate getting a job at Subway? If so, you have probably asked yourself “how old do you have to be to work at Subway?”

Subway is a global food chain that creates made-to-order sandwiches. Each region has the ingredients you’d expect- lettuce, tomato, ham, but some like to spice it up with local flavor like beats in Australia.

Subway’s global presence is undoubtedly the biggest barrier in answering such a simple question “how old do you have to be to work at Subway?” Every city, province/state, and country has its own laws and regulations for the employment of minors.

The Youngest Age for Employment

The youngest someone can apply for jobs varies across state/provincial borders. In Canada, between 12 and 14 years of age, teens are only allowed to work at certain jobs such as a clerk or delivery person of small wares for a retail store, clerk or messenger in an office, delivery person for the distribution of newspapers, flyers or handbills. For any other type of work, they need the approval of the Director of Labour Standards. They are allowed to work on school days, but no more than two hours.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) administers and enforces the federal child labor laws. Generally speaking, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the minimum age for employment (14 years for non-agricultural jobs), restricts the hour’s youth under the age of 16 may work, and prohibits youth under the age of 18 from being employed in hazardous occupations.
