The Associated Press reports that the Pennsylvania Department of Labor is investigating whether the hit show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” is complying with child labor laws.

The AP cites Labor Department spokesman Justin Fleming as confirming that his department is looking into a complaint against the TLC show, which films at the $1.1 million Wernersville, Pa., home of Jon and Kate Gosselin.

The network, meanwhile, says it “fully complies” with state laws and regulations.

I’ll update this post as warranted.

    like in the beginning of their show it says “its a crazy life but it is our life” i agree i sympathize for this whole family they are going through a hard time and i support them. some people say nasty things about kate and i don’t agree. she is only human and she is untitled to have a few break downs once and awhile. kate is a good mom and she shows it in how she doesn’t care what others think of her she is DOING HER JOB! so basically if their on or off GIVE POOR KATE A BREAK!

    I like the show but not Kate and can do without Mattie very spoiled troubled child. Jon while we don’t know what goes on when they are not filming gets my sympathy. Kate is such an self centered nasty person. Would she allow her kids to talk to other people the way she talks to Jon. I would have loved to see her reaction if Jon reversed the roles and yelled at her while they were out somewhere.. I might even be willling to pay to see it

    While it is an interesting show I wouldn’t say it’s good. Kate is the root of all evil in how she treats Jon, no one can deny that. Her pores seethe nasty and it’s sad both for Jon and the kids. She is incredibly verbally abusive. With all of the recent rumors I wouldn’t suspect it to go another season.

    I agree, they are a nice family who have been in the public eye. I hope they weather the storm and come together for their kids. i hope they ignore all the harmful things people are saying and doing and continue the sho

    I think it is a good show and hate that people have to cause problems just because they have a show on TV that shows there life. Most people have thing to hide so they are trying to make it work and do it on TV just leave them alone. STOP CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THEM.
