New Child Labor Law Inspired By Jon and Kate Plus 8

Jon-gosselin-changed-yellFor years I have begging someone to please, please, consider the children on reality shows to be working.  Because hey, guess yet, they are working.  Looks like someone finally listened. 



Rep. Thomas P. Murt of Montgomery County, PA, ironically where the Gosselins live, is introducing a bill related to children in the entertainment industry. He says it is a result of April's Republican Policy Committee hearing on child labor. 

But that hearing mainly focus on Jon and Kate, calling her brother and sister in law to testify, and well as Gloria Allred.

Murt says House Bill 2515 will propose "that advocates for minors to ensure their health, education, and moral safety are on all production sets." The bill restricts work hours of minors to between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. It also requires all minors to have a work permits issued by the Department of Labor and Industry, and that 15 percent of a minor’s gross earnings shall be set aside by the employer in a trust for the minor.

Can anyone argue that this is not a good thing?

Set aside another 15% for suing mom and dad for being tools and allowing cameras to film you while you are being potty trained.

This is a very good thing.

Probably the only good thing to come out of this trainwreck of a show.

Great. But I would like to see more than 15% going into that trust.
