A wholesale plant nursery in the area has agreed to pay 75 people to settle a dispute about wages.

The workers will get various amounts under the $60,000 deal between the owners of Sawyer Nursery and the U.S. Labor Department.

The agreement was filed this month in federal court in Grand Rapids. The parties are asking a judge to approve it.

Sawyer Nursery grows perennial plants for the wholesale market in Hudsonville.

The government accused the owners of not paying overtime.

The nursery's website says the business has been successful because of the "quality and work ethic" of employees.
