Child Labor Overkill?

Most parents expect kids to help around the house, but what about with the family business?
A Connecticut man said his three children - ages 13,11, and 8– helped out at the family pizza restaurant on weekends.
But the state labor department says he’s violating child labor laws.
The father says he learned the family business from his dad the same way years ago, and it’s about family tradition.
He has since filed a lawsuit against the state.
The Attorney General’s office is looking into the lawsuit.

So what do you think about the case, is it a violation of child labor laws, or just your average family business?
Post your comments here. Fredricka will read some of them on the air in the 10am ET hour of Newsroom.
