by: Article Unsigned | publication date: December 5, 1979 | Publication: Atlanta Constitution |

"The wage and hour case 'was a matter where the wage-hour office said a person couldn't come in a store and take off his coat and go to the bathroom without being on the payroll. It was not a question of taking advantage of anybody; nobody had ever argued about it; we weren't trapped or caught or anything.'"
