Video purporting to show a 6-year-old old boy picking potatoes at a farm run by a religious community and other children working at the group's high-end cosmetics factory has prompted an investigation by New York state labor officials.The state's labor commissioner said the department will investigate the Twelve Tribes community in Cambridge, New York, after the TV show "Inside Edition" aired hidden camera footage appearing to show child labor. The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that the commune owns a 112-acre farm in Cambridge and maintains dozens of other communities around the world.There was no immediate comment Tuesday from Savannah Bee.
