Jon and Kate Gosselin Face Child Labor Investigation

by at . Comments

The marital woes of Jon and Kate Gosselin have gone from mere tabloid fodder to something much more serious.

Earlier today, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor confirmed that an investigation is underway to determine whether or not Jon & Kate Plus 8 is violating child labor laws, following a series of complaints against the program.

Grating Kate

"We're not saying that they are not complying with child labor laws. We're investigating a complaint," Troy Thompson of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor said. "We're not saying that there was or was not a violation, just that we're conducting an investigation."

Earlier this week, Kate's brother and sister-in-law specifically called for such an investigation, as Kevin and Jodi Kreider wondered why there were no "laws protecting children in reality TV shows."

In a statement, TLC says:

“TLC fully complies with all applicable laws and regulations. ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8′ is no exception. For an extended period of time, we have been engaged in cooperative discussions and supplied all requested information to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor. We will continue to engage the appropriate officials and meet any standards or regulations that are applicable to TLC productions.”

A new episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs this Monday. If you really have a problem with how Jon and Kate Gosselin treat their children, you won't watch.

I think Jon & Kate "could" reconcile, minus the media. Family life 1st. I have been a single mom for 18 years with Twins (21) and a single (18) daughters. I have struggled for many years, but have never had my children in any danger. I think DCF should be involved with this family as every show since the kids were little, they have been harshly disciplined by kate, emotional distress with all the media, and I think that made Jon standoffish. If they would just go to counseling, go back to why they got married, have a simple family life and enjoy their children, their marriage would last for a long time. Kate needs not to be flashing her body for media. Just do a guest spot once a year as the kids are older, and discuss it with them to see if they really want this.
