    Default US. Dept. of Labor Sues Mt. Rushmore Broadcasting

    From Radio Info:

    US. Dept. of Labor Sues Mt. Rushmore Broadcasting

    The Casper, Wyoming-based Mt. Rushmore Broadcasting corporation is being sued by the federal agency for allegedly violating wage laws. The Wyoming Star-Tribune reports the suit claims workers at Mt. Rushmore received less than federal minimum wage and weren’t paid overtime when they worked more than 40 hours a week. The allegations date as far back as August 2008. Mt. Rushmore president Jan Charles Gray disputed the allegations and, in an email to the paper, states, "The filing is bogus and unfortunate". The accusations themselves are not accurate, [coming] from disgruntled former employees, some of whom are convicted felons. There are six former employees involved in the suit with varying tenure at Mt. Rushmore. One worked for the company for as brief a period as two weeks. Gray tells the paper that even if the allegations were accurate, exemptions in the Fair Labor Standards Act prevent the rules from applying to his company "This is an unconstitutional action by the Department of Labor to target small business.”
