Dough! Pizza Parents Sue State

According to NBCConnecticut.com, “Michael and Migdalia Nuzzo‘s children had been helping out at the family’s pizza shop in Clinton for a few hours on weekends, but an investigator for the state Department of Labor told then that had to end.”

“The Nuzzos’ oldest child, a 13-year-old boy, helps dad make pizza at Grand Apizza, while the two younger children, 8 and 11, help mom clear tables, Michael Nuzzo said. Recently, a customer complained about the children working to state Department of Labor’s Wage and Workplace, prompting the visit on May 12, according to Courthouse News Service. The investigator told the dad “that the Nuzzo children could not be seen assisting their parents” in the restaurant and cited state law that prohibits “the employment of minors in certain occupation,” according to the report.”
