Since the drinking age is 21, what is a 19-year-old (at most) doing working in a bar?

In Michigan, even though the drinking age is 21, one needs only be 18 to serve alcohol.

You don't have to be 21 to work in a bar. You have to be 18 to serve a drink, but even a 16 year old can work there bussing tables or washing dishes.
In the US, 18 year olds are legally adults in all respects with the exception of drinking.

i work at a bar. the cocktail waitresses are 19 and hot! why do you think they get hired? they make more money.
thankfully, smoking is not allowed. i wouldn't work there if it was. nothing worse than going home reeking of smoke.
