Wonk Watch: Tight Bright Blue Intern Screw

The same day that dripping Tory wets Bright Blue back calls to ‘strengthen the minimum wage’ they have put an advert out for a job of their own:

“Bright Blue is looking for an intern to support the executive of Bright Blue with a range of activities, including research, communications, organising events and conferences, and administrative tasks. We are looking for a creative, hard-working individual who will contribute new ideas to the group.”

So what strength will the minimum wage be for this gig?

“The role being advertised is a voluntary one.”

Zero. Zilch. Kaput. 

They make some noise about paying if there are set hours, but:

 “We would like the intern to support us for 3 months, starting from 20th January 2014. They will be expected to be with the Director of Bright Blue once a week, and attend our monthly executive meeting and any events we host.”

Rich kids only, SVP.

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
