Labor Department investigates two Major League baseball teams for wage violations

The Balitmore Orioles and Oakland A’s join the Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants that are now under review for possible violations of federal wage standards. The Labor Department’s focus is pay for clubhouse and administrative workers and interns, who in some cases have gotten less than the minimum wage or were not paid time-and-a-half after more than 40 hours of work in a week, as the law requires.
