Wal-Mart Child Labor Law Fee

February 12, 2005-- Posted at 12:35p.m. CST

Wal-Mart will pay almost $136,000 to settle federal charges that it broke child labor laws.

The 24 violations occurred at stores in Arkansas, Connecticut and New Hampshire.

They had to do with teenage workers who used hazardous equipment such as a chain saw, paper bailers and fork lifts.

Wal-Mart denied the allegations, but agreed to pay the penalty.
