Someone is trying to look out for unpaid/low paid interns

Hopefully, these interns will win this suit and prevent newspapers from basically using them as unpaid news servants.

Reminds of the comment made by a former Booth reporter - who was let go during the infamous purge of a few years ago: "That's OK, I'd make more working at Subway than I would if stuck around working for these clowns."

So true. Yet they (the current Booth "executive team") pitch it as, "We want young, tech-savvy reporters to take us into they new era."

Translated: "We need 20-somethings who will work for nothing at papers they never had a chance of working for before."
