Default Child labor?

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/cri...or.wfsb?hpt=C2

I just saw the video, but in a nutshell, a pizzeria owner got a visit from the department of labor in CT because someone dropped a dime on him for "employing" children. The catch? They're his kids, learning the family business. If he had them in 6 days a week sweating it out in front of a brick oven I might feel differently, but this just seems wrong in all the unpleasant nannystate ways.

Just stupid. It is stories like these that almost make we want to become a Libertarian like Drysdale, but then I remember the Dwarf costume he has to wear and then I shudder at the thought.

Fucking ridiculous. You can put your kids to work at home, why not at your other property? As long as they are in no danger, there shouldn't be a problem. Whatever self-righteous twat dropped the dime on this guy needs to be kicked in the junk 'til it doesn't work anymore.
