Well, maybe not to that extent but I thought it was way too simplistic and even (IANAL but even I can see) wrong. For example he falsely (AIUI) claimed that the FLSA prohibits Charlie from having a paper route job. The FLSA explicitly exempts paper delivery jobs. So it would have helped to have a bit of back and forth (it could be illegal in some states, for example) both to make it more interesting and more accurate. Don't get me started on overtime and all that. I just found it extremely difficult to believe the "well, that's that, he'd be in deep water for that one!" attitude. If it were that simple, there'd be no need for lawyers.
