Pennsylvania Politician Says ‘Kate Plus 8’ Kids Violate State’s Child Labor Laws, Asks for Attorney General to Step In

Jul 15, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A Pennsylvania state representative says the Gosselin sextuplets on "Kate Plus 8" are violating the state’s child labor laws and has asked the state’s attorney general to examine the permits issued for the Gosselin kids, reports MyFoxPhilly.com

The TLC show, filmed in Wernersville, Pa., features the 6-year old sextuplets, which Rep. Thomas P. Murt says is an issue because the law doesn’t mention television shows as a reason for giving work permits to children under 7, the story says.

The Department of Labor can issue special permits for children between 7 to 18 to work in entertainment productions, the article adds. "It appears those permits were granted even though the law does not provide for them," Murt says. "Under the Commonwealth Attorneys Act, the attorney general is authorized to furnish legal advice to agency heads concerning the interpretation of state laws and regulations. I have asked him to look into this case to determine whether these permits are legal."

  1. I have one question… why now?

  2. He needs publicity for the upcoming election.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
