Paparazzi Playhouse -- Is It Legit?

6/19/2007 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ's new favorite paparazzi are only 14-years-old and cute as a button -- but is their budding enterprise against the law?

Child labor laws regulate the hours and working conditions of minors; children under the age of 14 can work only in certain occupations. For example, a 14-year-old can't work in construction or operate power machinery. You'd think that would be obvious, but no.

Junior pap Austin is in the clear. According to California child labor laws, Austin is exempt from restrictions because he's self-employed and therefore does not require a work permit. Good work, little buddy.

As for Austin's day-to-day activities, our friends at BuzzFoto spent the day with Austin and his sidekick, Blaine. Austin showed off his wad of cash (kinda) and an arsenal of lenses and pepper spray. "This will mess someone up if they try and jack our s**t." Cameras even followed Austin as he tracked down Adam Sandler on his way out of the gym!

Someday, we'll all be working for Austin.

What does this story have to do with PARIS HILTON?
Damn, can't the little boy get his props, regardless of the fact his parents should send him to summer camp and wash out his mouth with soap on the way.
You people are infatuated with her huh? I swear there's a page full of her...just not her.
