State and federal laws do not limit the hours that minors 16 years of age or over may work, except that they may not be employed 
or permitted to work during hours of required school attendance under Wis . Stat. § 118.15.    
 
State and federal laws also permit minors under 16  to work up to seven days per week in the delivery of newspapers and 
agriculture.   In most other types of labor, minors  under 16 may only work six days a week.  
 
Most employers must obtain work permits for minors  under 16 before permitting them to work.  For further information, see the 
Wisconsin Employment of Minors Guide (ERD -4758 -P).
