What about Sarah Mirk?
how the hell does a multi million dollar publishing empire, w\two major weeklies, get away with a no pay worker?
You wanna pay an unknown gofer/intern of questionable quality wages for 20 hours a week, you go right on ahead. I can't blame the Stranger for not doing so.
If the demand weren't there there'd be no volunteers.
And the term 'empire' may be a bit much.
You forgot the 520 bridge.
Why won't The Stranger say what it pays its regular staffers? Or would Tim Keck "veto" that disclosure?
Why is it any of your business?
re: 520... given Sarah Mirk's done all the reporting on that issue and she's the n00b on the block, that story's probably all her.
I believe interning is a great way to get life experience, learn a business and get college credit.
It's not always about getting paid in $ - sometimes it is about learning something and being around something you love.
Where can I send my resume. I graduate from SPSCC? Does that help?
@8...it's also not a bad way to get your foot in the door for a paid gig (cf. Sarah). At least four interns have been hired where I work and I know of several other cases at other organizations.
Especially in the non-profit world this is not uncommon.
as if students are not entitled to minimum wage........
I agree with those who don not like so called interns who ate set up to work for free, shitty ..... pay the min. wage to entry level part time employees who work for for profit business......
oh, god, i forgot, the Stranger can't afford another 140.00 a week of expense.
how very stupid of me.......it is shitty and exploitive.......pay these kids
Gee, Jay, I didn't know you had total access to the Stranger's ledgers and knew for sure that they could afford to print their paper AND pay their interns for every hour worked. Thanks for the info.
