The owner of a Connecticut pizzeria, accused of violating state child labor laws by having his kids work in the restaurant, is suing the state on grounds the laws violate his constitutional rights. Is this something the government should be involved in? Is it proper to have government laws that prevent children from working?

FTA: "[The Department of Labor] told him that his children could not be seen assisting their parents in the restaurant, under state statutes that prohibit the employment of minors in certain occupations... Clinton attorney Raymond Rigat, who is representing the Nuzzos, said the couple's children are with them after school Fridays and on Saturdays, and do not operate dangerous equipment, are not paid wages and are under the direct supervision of their parents and occasionally their grandparents... The Nuzzos are asking the federal court for a ruling preventing the state from prohibiting their children from "learning the pizza trade under their parents' tutelage at their restaurant," as the suit reads."

It's tradition vs. labor law at Clinton pizzeria

About braincrave


We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
