White House urged to pay interns Published: August 20, 2013

The campaign to end unpaid internships has reached the White House, according to USA TODAY.

The paper reports the Fair Pay campaign, a private group, is calling on President Obama and aides to pay White House interns, hoping the move will inspire other employers.

“We have a minimum wage law in this country, and just because you call someone an intern doesn’t mean you get out of it,” says Mikey Franklin of the Fair Pay Campaign.
