DNC: Pay Your Interns

DNC: Pay Your Interns

The DNC must immediately end unpaid internships and pay all interns a living wage.

Why is this important?

Every single time you see a posting for an unpaid internship, you’re seeing a posting that’s only open to people who can afford to work for free. These unpaid and unregulated positions drive down wages across the whole economy, and prevent anyone without economic privilege from getting ahead.
— Mikey Franklin

The Democratic Party can't fight for a living wage on one hand and expect people to work for free on the other.

Enough is enough.

  • Interns spend time they could be using to earn money to work for free. In todays world, it's unfair and almost impossible.
  • everyone should be paid for their work
