Left Foot Forward have launched an appeal to pay their interns a London living wage through contributions from their readers. Anything that raises the issue of interns pay and ends up with interns paid for the work they do is fantastic in our opinion.
All progressives should pay their interns a fair wage and all those that care about youth unemployment and low pay should get behind this appeal.
You cannot claim to care about these crucial issues if you are ignoring inequality and injustice in your own office.
We all know the so called progressive organisations that don’t pay minimum wage… perhaps you could name them… I will kick off with the New Statesman!
