Chuck E. Cheese fined for violating child labor laws
Nine Chuck E. Cheese restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area have been fined more than $28,000 for violating federal child labor laws.
Teenagers at some of the restaurants were allowed to load and operate trash compactors, the U.S. Labor Department said when it announced the fines this week.
At the Chuck E. Cheese pizza parlor in Rohnert Park, minors were allegedly allowed to operate a dough mixer.
Chuck E. Cheese's has paid the civil penalties and instructed underage employees not to operate the machines, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
