Bill de Blasio “Hiring” Unpaid Design Intern

Bill de Blasio is waging a mayoral campaign based on fighting inequality in New York City, yet is actively participating in a practice that perpetuates inequality. The campaign is looking for a graphic design intern, who will not be compensated for their labor. Tell Bill de Blasio interns are not volunteers. If you talk the talk, walk the walk!

In case you’re wondering…Joe Lhota is looking for interns as well. Compensation is not specified here, but we’re not optimistic.
