Ohio Televangelist Fined For Labor Law Violations

A judge has ordered an Ohio televangelist and his restaurant to pay over 388 thousand dollars in wages and damages to a group of employees after finding members of his church were urged to volunteer at the buffet, and it used the unpaid workers.  The U.S. Department of Labor sued Ernest Angley and his Cuyahoga Falls restaurant alleging labor-law violations after an investigation found 239 employees at the buffet were owed a total of 207 thousand dollars.  Angley says buffet operators did nothing wrong, and he's considering an appeal.
