Different states have different laws. California makes the employer pay double time when an employee works seven days in a row and more than 8 hours on the seventh day. Other states have different laws. It depends on which state you live in and also which industry you work in.

The laws regarding consecutive numbers of days works vary from state to state and also depend on a number of other factors. Is the worker salaried or hourly? Are they union members working under a union contract? Are they specialty workers? (Fire, police, etc). Some laws may not limit the days worked, but mandate certain pay for them.

There really aren't any laws pertaining to this. You can't be forced to work, but should be compensated better over forty hours a week. For someone under eighteen there is a limit by the state you are in.

Depending on the state in which you work the days that you can work in a row differ. For intance in the state of MA, you cannot work more than 6 days in a row. This usually applies only to hourly wage earning employees. Salary employees are in a different range.
