    Pay your interns!

    It’ll improve your operation and make it more diverse and just. You won’t be relying on privilege to subsidize staffing and your interns can do better work that they’re proud of when they aren’t exhausted working 2-3 jobs to subsidize one.

    We pay ours $15/hr.

    isn't the point of an intern so they get experience and are not paid. if one is paying an intern then doesn't that make them employees and not an intern.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    he must care, he is helping, right. or does it only deserve credit when it's a Democrat helping.


    Ted Cruz was straight up wrong for leaving, but this idea that AOC simply must care about these people because she is helping, ignores any prior intentions/actions.
    Is this Cruz being abusive..?

    if anyone in an "internship" is paid, then what is the point of calling them an intern. they would simply be a hired employee.

    I’m sure that is AOC’s fault too.

    What about the word internship screams unpaid to you?
    The intern gets supervised practical experience in their career field, but they're still doing actual work for a set period of time. They're not officially employees because they've not gone thru the normal hiring practice.
    The employer gets some work, at a reduced rate, and has direct knowledge of the intern's ability for consideration of future employment- win win

    That said, there are such things as unpaid internships, but paid is more the norm.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I've always thought the point of an internship is a set period of time to give people the work experience they need in order to be better qualified in the future. a company/business gets the person helping, and the intern would get experience instead of being paid.

    if there is more for an internship then so be it.

    If AOC pays her Intern, yes. If anyone else does, who cares.

    Special admitted to not knowing that interns can be paid at times. No big deal.
