The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

In 1945, Sarah was 35 years old when on May 7th, the Supreme Court ruled in the case of Jewell Ridge Coal Corp. v. United Mine Workers of America. The Court ruled that the underground travel time of coal miners was compensable work time under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
