Child Labor Violations At Chargers Games?
Federal regulators are investigating whether student groups volunteering at San Diego Chargers games to usher fans or perform other tasks may have run afoul of child-labor laws.
The San Diego Unified School District students work for no pay, in exchange for contributions to their organization. In some cases, students were required to volunteer to stay eligible for extracurricular activities.
Under one arrangement, a student group was to receive $40 per shift for volunteers working up to nine hours — as little as $4.50 an hour.
The U.S. Department of Labor requested records and information from the district about the program that for years sent high school students to Qualcomm Stadium to check tickets, show fans to their seats and perform other low-level jobs.
