Query by Kyle: Are excessive/semi-unsafe “chores” illegal?
I’m currently 14, male, and living in Washington state. I dwell with my phase dad, mom, and a half sister.
My phase dad grows Health-related Marijuana and supplies it to a Co-Op or some thing like that.
Apparently, supplying the Co-Op is donating (Not creating cash), but the problem is, he IS generating income. After the lighting, equipments were paid off, he is producing funds given that you never have to buy the lighting unless of course they break.
He tends to make me do 10-hour days if I am lucky. He also claims that he is paying out me. Now, analyze this for a second.If he is paying out me, I do not have a function permit. Would this be considered a chore? I imply it really is semi-harmful. I also never feel a 14-year outdated ought to be functioning about Marijuana. In addition, gluing the pipes in I was uncovered to the harmful smell of the pipe glue. He occasionally tends to make me use the power saw. Aren’t these health hazards that a standard 14- year outdated shouldn’t encounter?
Never get me incorrect, I love my family but he is ruining my childhood by taking my time. I ought to be out there, hanging out with pals.
* I do not thoughts carrying out regular chores (i.e. Washing dishes)
Lengthy hour perform times just does not seem to be correct for me. You can get in touch with me lazy but that is just not appropriate…
Any assistance? Can I report him to the Kid safety providers? How do I cease him from producing me do people work? Any assist would be appreciated. I never want him in jail, just want me to cease creating me do individuals varieties of perform.
*Increasing marijuana plants is apparently legal in our state or something.
where can I verify if it is illegal in washington?
Yes, I do aid around the property.
Babysitting my lil’ sis, washing dishes, undertaking laundry, and so forth.
My point is, he’s making funds which is regarded company and it really is not a “normal” chore. Quite much utilizing me as an employee which I can’t be due to the fact Im only 14. Ill try out to have a speak about it with him however.
edit again: So I cannot contact the cps or anything to make him stop generating me perform those hrs..?
