A Connecticut man says the state is attacking his Italian heritage. How? By telling him his kids can't work in the family pizza place. Michael Nuzzo's three children are 13, 11, and 8. And they were learning the family business on weekends making pizza like their dad did at his dad's restaurant years ago, but the state labor department put a stop to that and said it was a violation of labor laws. The Nuzzo's say this is about family tradition.
We're not slave drivers, you know. We're just teaching them what we know. You know, so that when they become adults, you know, if they go to college and do whatever they have to do in life and it's something they don't like, they have something to fall back on.
They're attacking my tradition, my culture. Being Italian, this is how we were raised, and it attacks my integrity.
All right. The Nuzzos are suing the state. The attorney general's office says it's looking at that lawsuit. And the family's oldest child, by the way, turns 14 in just a few weeks. He will be old enough, by law, to work, just a few hours.
