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.

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