Democrats are always insisting on a higher minimum wage for private companies. Yet Hillary is hiring interns for the fall who are expected to work for free. How is that fair?
The Daily Caller reports:
EXCLUSIVE: HILLARY CLINTON IS HIRING INTERNS FOR THE FALL — BUT WON’T PAY THEM A CENT
Hillary Clinton is hiring a batch of unpaid interns for the fall to work in her New York City office, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis and will “run from September to mid-December.” The internship requires “a minimum of three days per week,” and undergrads “of all majors are encouraged to apply.”
While the amount of hours per day aren’t specified, the “internship is unpaid.”
“Interns will provide support to our staff, assisting our work on a wide range of projects. Work will include but will not be limited to: compiling press clips, monitoring social media, conducting research, drafting correspondence, and assisting with office management,” the job posting states.
Clinton’s office is looking for applicants who have “a high level of professionalism and discretion,” “strong research and writing skills,” “the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team,” “strong interpersonal communication skills,” “a diligent work ethic and a sense of conscientiousness,” as well as “enthusiasm, dedication, and a positive attitude.”
Will the folks of the “Fight for Fifteen” be holding a protest over this? Don’t count on it.
