Kate drags kids on yet another filmed trip--are they following New York labor laws?

The camera crew was spotted out today with Kate, the kids, Steve and Jamie at none other than the Lancaster train station. The family and employees/friends/enablers are headed to New York City for another filmed vacation. New York City is supposed to be very hot and humid all week. Will there be a child advocate or set teacher on hand to determine whether it's too hot for the kids to work, and whether they have adequate water and shade?

New York is no Pennsylvania. They have strict child labor laws that must be complied with whether you live there or are just on a visit, that apply to reality show children.



As required by New York State law, has TLC ....



  • Applied and obtained permits issued by the New York Department of Labor? PA permits are no good there.

  • Obtained a "certificate of eligibility" for the kids to work from the NY Department of Labor?

  • Provided proof in the form of documentation they've established a "Coogan fund" or similar trust account where 15% of EACH child's earnings from any work they do in New York goes into said trust? Not 15% for the whole group, not 15% of PROFITS, but 15% of EACH CHILD'S EARNINGS. There's a difference.

  • Provided evidence to the Department of Labor that each child is in good academic standing?

Crickets.


And since apparently our word that the kids were filming this "scene" at the train station isn't enough for some of Kate's fans, here's a photo to prove it. We circled the cameraman for the Mr. Magoos out there with bad eyes.

I just posted about these pics on the last post, but am wondering if it would be possible to see if all the rules in New York are followed, and if they have all the right permits?

Judy said...

They were also filming with the TLC CREW in Chinatown.They all had different outfits on in this one.
Pics on TMZ.
Those poor children forced to work in 100 degree weather to support their mother is just unforgiveable.
I would love to know if anyone is keeping track of all these different filming days and where they are.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Just saw the Chinatown pics on TMZ.com. Kate has her back to the kids in all the pics! In Manhattan... In Chinatown. It's so busy and crowded there. I don't know how she can take her eye off her kids... Especially knowing the film crew will just continue filming whatever harm comes their way.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Oh... And she was busy with Jamie so it's not like jamie was watching them either. And there are 8 of them anyway. That's a lot of kids in such a busy area.

Kelly said...

Kate WAS NOT filming with her kids in NY. Kate was merely collecting a paycheck. Kids be dammned.

Why does Kate continue to wear such trampy outfits while on an outing with her kids. OOOOPS, I meant to say while having her kids work for her.

PatK said...

This is getting more and more insane. Dragging your kids to NYC in this kind of heat for filming to support your lavish habits and dressing yourself like a $10 hooker?

This circus needs to end. No, seriously.

Bonafide Nutcase said...

Wonder why Steve changed his shirt? He's always behind the scenes.

Dat ain't in my contract said...

Jamie looks like Kate's understudy ready to jump in at any "uhhhhh uhhhhh" moment.

Sadie said...

Of course they have to work, even in triple diget weather...ahhhhhhhhhhh

SchmeckyGirl said...

Bonafide,
It's 100 degrees out. He was probably just a sweaty mess. Those poor kids. They should be indoors in air conditioning or in their pool. There isn't even a breeze in Manhattan.

Laura D. said...

It's just a couple of degrees cooler here in Toronto but I wouldn't let my kids outside until after 8:00PM when we took the dog for a walk. Unless the G kids had those huge movie fans blowing on them I don't know how they did it?

SchmeckyGirl said...

I actually didnt think there was anything wrong with the black top and shorts. The shoes were just "over the top" with the shorts. JMO.

Laura D. said...

Schemck, you must be younger than I am (45). I wouldn't wear what could pass for a swimsuit on the streets of Manhattan and I have a pretty good figure. It all comes down to respecting your audience, which Kate has yet to get the hang of.

Thank you. Agreed that the shoes were a bit much, but there was nothing remotely hooker-like about the shorts and top.

OC Girl said...

It isn't the first time Kate & TLC filmed the kids in triple digit weather. Wasn't there a couple of episodes where they went to some theme parks in extreme weather?

Again, setting the kids up for disasters/meltdowns. Way to go, Kate & TLC!

It looks like Kate and Jamie swapped shorts again comparing the Chinatown pics with the train station ones.

Was this really filmed on the same day as the Chinatown ones? I didn't see any large bags or suitcases with them, so I'm assuming they didn't spend the night. The sextuplet girls and Mady's different outfits stood out in comparison.

"It's 100 degrees out. He was probably just a sweaty mess. Those poor kids. They should be indoors in air conditioning or in their pool. There isn't even a breeze in Manhattan."

I couldn't walk around NYC in those heels with eight kids any time of the year, yet alone in temps of triple digits. I don't know how she does it...I really don't. Why not be comfortable?

Those poor children working in that heat. Between the weather and the noise of traffic in N.Y. one or more is bound to become ill.

Anonymous said...

I hope someone in the NY Dept of Labor is watching.......

Poor kids!! It is crazy hot now - they should be in the pool, eating popcicles and enjoying their summer BREAK.

Just another girl

Beth said...

I wish passerby would have started yelling at her to make some money on her OWN effort and not on her kids' backs.

But I also wish her 15 minutes would run out tomorrow. I know it'll be soon, bitch doesn't have any talent or skills to make it as a public persona.

Meagler said...

The pictures from Chinatown.. the outfits that kate and Jamie are wearing are almost exact to the outfits they were wearing in the following pictures taken towards end of june I believe..especially Kate. Jamie has white shorts on, and the black shoes are a bit different...but.. makes me wonder if the TMZ pics really are in Chinatown???

this is child abuse said...

Kate's only priority is, sadly, Kate. And since she is owned by TLC, she will do anything they ask, include endangering her own children's health. She could have put her foot down and postponed filming. A sweltering, dangerous heatwave is a legitimate excuse. But nooooo....on with the show. She will do anything TLC asks of her, for they supply her with things, stuff, fame, notoriety, childcare, and the ability to remain unemployed. Whenever TLC drops her, she will be a pathetic, plastic surgeried nobody who will finally have to actually take care of her own children and pay for all those things we all have to. That is, if those kids don't stroke out from the heat. She should be reported to CPS. For once she isn't being neglectful; now she's being abusive. Way to go, Botoxed Biyatch

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

One of the pictures with Kate sitting on the bench (where we get a really good look at those ridiculous shoes), she is looking up with a terrific smile and sparkling eyes and we can see at the edge of the picture that she is looking up at Steve. I have never, ever seen her smile anywhere neat that way with any of her children nor of course with Jon. This picture alone lends credence to the rumors.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

...near that way...

TMZ last night showed a picture of Kate and she had the same old, same old look on her face. It was the "who farted" look. I don't think TMZ likes her very much.

justme said...

Please, someone with a conscience and a brain step in and rescue these kids.This heat in the northeast is very dangerous.When you combine the heat with the humidity,it can be fatal for young and old alike.No stupid reality show is worth risking someones life. This is just sick,sick,sick.

Politely disagree; black short shorts and a halter top look like cocktail time to me, not a hundred degree heat day wear outfit. Kate looks a little she wants to brandish a whip in these pics. Jarring when you consider she was out with her kids, but that is the real story. Having those kids filming in 100 degree heat out on the streets of NY is abuse. It was so hot here in upstate NY that we could not even hang out by the pool, the concrete is just too hot. I kept my kids and dogs inside yesterday. The Gosselins as usual, were not afforded any consideration. I am truly surprised though that TLC would open themselves up to such blatant evidence of abuse when the whole issue of these children's welfare continues to be brought into question. I am not sure if it is that these folks(Kate and TLC) have no shame or they have no sense.
I hope Maddy didn't ask for water, Kate would have drank it instead.

K8SUCKS said...

K8 looks like a tramp because everything she wears is too young, too small, too short and totally inappropriate for whatever she is doing.

She is not a 20-something starlet, she should stop dressing like one.

I actually don't hate the shoes, but not with that outfit and NOT for a field trip to the Statue of Liberty in the middle of the day. The sum is much worse than the parts.

The worst part of this is that the kids are forced to work in record-breaking heat. Where are the authorities ?!?!?

Kelly said...

I'm surprised that Kate was holding the handrail and allowing her kids to hold the handrail too, the germaphobe that she is. Hmmmmm,,,, or could that too be part of her schtick?

I guess when the truth comes out we'll learn that Kate likes to pick her nose and flick em.

Nancy said...

Unfreaking Believable!!!!!

it's like she does this stuff as a "screw you" I do it because I can and who's going to stop me??

Oh ya and because TLC tells her too.......

Linda in NS said...

Kelly, Kate was likely holding the handrail as she didn't want to fall off her hooker heels and tumble down the steps. She'd probably land on those fake bazoombas and bounce across the floor on them.

Anonymous said...

I grew up on Long Island, went to public school, and played sports in school. If the temp reached 90, I think, after school activities were cancelled because of a heat advisory (outdoor activities were also cancelled immediately if thunder or lightning was present).

So why are the kids being filmed in 100+ degree heat? It was 102 degrees at JFK yesterday. Doesn't NYC have child labor laws? I would think that this situation would be covered in NYC laws somewhere.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Wrong...
You are right. I'm just so used to seeing Steve in a checked blue shirt and assumed it was him. Maybe it was a cameraman or producer, hee hee.

TLC stinks said...

I expect this summer and next year will the last of this train wreck. Cara and Mady are rapidly approaching pre-teen years and we all know how that goes as their bodies change, and the tups look ridiculous dressed the same at their age, so Kate is going to drag them wherever she can to squeeze every nickel out, heat be damned.

At least she did change clothes for the filming. And I see that Jamie will be in some of the shots. I wonder how long that friendship will last. Geez, how many people has Kate Gosselin used to "help" with the kids and then discarded them, although Jamie is the "friend" I believe often quoted in the tabloids in regards to any positive references to Kate. I guess Kate is allowing Jamie to be paid by TLC unlike Kevin and Jodi.

Linda in NS said...

Wrong said... Oh yeah, you're on to something alright. More "evidence" to support a rumor. Oh wait...except for the tiny fact that the shirt sleeve upon which your theory is based is not the same as the shirt that Steve is wearing. My oh my do folks see what they want to see.

Correct. The sleeve is plaid and Stevo is wearing solid blue. What I did notice, however, in the picture is that peson's elbow is towards Kart so it appears that individual has his back to Kate. Maybe Kate was smiling at Steve who was just out of the picture (by plan no doubt). The first pic of BFF Jamie guarding Kate is horrible. She is one rough looking woman; perhaps she should be called James.

Kelly said...

Linda in NS,
I think you have a good point there. If she did fall down those steps, she would land on her boobs and then bounce about 8 feet in the air like a super ball. Steve is so short, he couldn't catch her.

Well, butter my biscuit and slap my ass !
Kate Gosselin is posing with the Donald and his wife last night at Madison Sq Garden in NYC.
They were there to see Lady Gaga. She probably had front roll seats.
Well, she is about ready to ruin another one of my favorite shows,The Appentice. That just doesn't surprise me though. I saw it coming after the rumors of it.
She looked like crap to me.Looks like she didn't have a chance to shower. Her hair looked pathetic.
I'll not even comment on Steve.
The eight must have been back at the hotel, exhausted from heat stress, with Jamie.

I just realized.....

Kate Gosselin is not going away anytime soon. I think she's got another year or so to destroy her children or herself, which ever comes first.
I'm afaid that she has already laid a path of destruction for one,or more, of those children, and we'll be reading about them in the future.
So sad to think that, even before they were born, she was selling them out and still is.

justme said...

One of the pictures at the train station has Jamie holding onto Mady's arm.Mady is one who cannot hid her displeasure,it shows in her face. You can see Mady is not a happy camper.

Judy, I think you're right. Kate is going nowhere. The only reason for being seen with the Donald could only mean she's going to be the next Omorosa of Celebrity Apprentice. She is going to squeeze every dime she can out of being a hateful B. My heart breaks for all the kids, but especially the twins who surely are aware of every bit of this hot mess. If this is true, isn't the filming for Apprentice much longer and time intensive than DWTS? Jon should get his ducks in a row now to have primary custody of the kids while Kate is in NYC. The real celebrities will probably try to vote Kate out right away, but just like DWTS ther will be manipulation to string out her bitchery. (throwing up a little in my mouth)

PA Mom ALSO said...

PA Child Labor Laws require a work permit to be placed where the child is being filmed, even if it is out of state. If TLC is filming in New York, were the work permits placed at the point of filming? If not, a violation took place, according to the laws here.

You'd think the camera crew would have a say in having to work in those extreme conditions. I know Ms. Thang wouldn't dare say "no filming today", but I wonder if the crew could just say "F@$#k this s%*t!"
and call their union rep?

"And since apparently our word that the kids were filming this "scene" at the train station isn't enough for some of Kate's fans, here's a photo to prove it. We circled the cameraman for the Mr. Magoos out there with bad eyes."

Why is it assumed that when a person, such as myself, asks a question, that they automatically become "Kate's fans?" IT WAS A QUESTION! I clicked on the links provided, and didn't see a film crew. That's not to say I didn't believe one wasn't there. I just wondered where others were seeing the crew. There were six photos on the celelebrity gossip site that was linked and I didn't see the photo that was just posted above. I'm sorry I asked for a link. I won't do it again!! And for the record, I MOST DEFINITELY AM NOT A KATE FAN OR A SHEEPLE!

Now, where did I put my darn glasses?
