Chargers questioned on child labor practices

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Federal regulators are investigating whether the use of high school volunteers at San Diego Chargers games violates child-labor laws.

U-T San Diego (http://bitly.com/TNmm2H ) says the Department of Labor is looking into the longtime practice of using students to check tickets and usher fans at Qualcomm Stadium.

Students from several schools in the San Diego Unified School District worked for free but their student groups received contributions. In one case, a student group was to receive $40 per shift for volunteers working up to nine hours.

The probe involves work for a stadium contractor called Elite Show Services.

Both the district and Elite say they're cooperating.
