Lean In: PAY your interns!

Reason for signing

  • I've worked an unpaid internship before. The Executive Director told me I was to treat this as a paid job. I went into debt during that six week internship, paying for travel expenses without even a stipend, working 42.5 hours per week plus over an hour each day in commute, and it wasn't really an internship because no one treated me like I was there to learn. Will never do a full-time, unpaid internship again.
