The end of the World Series should have wrapped up the news season for major league baseball in the U.S. It didn't. But while the latest story is about conflict, it's not the uplifting sort. The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating the San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins for alleged wage law violations, according to FairWarning.org

FairWarning reported that emails and interviews obtained under the Freedom of Information Act showed that the current examination of the Giants was over possible improper use of unpaid interns. The report did not provide details of the allegations toward the Marlins.
