SIGN NOW: Protect Interns in the American Jobs Plan!
President Biden’s American Jobs Plan proposes $48 billion in investments in the workplace and worker safety―but there’s one big exception: Interns.
For too long, America has treated internships as a loophole that allows corporations to evade regulations around wages and hours worked. Unpaid interns are not even covered under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the Civil Rights Act.
In fact, outside of New York City, Oregon, and Washington, DC, unpaid workers are not protected against sexual harassment in the workplace.
As we Build Back Better from the COVID-19 crisis, it’s time to bring these workers out of the shadows and demand fair wages and workplace protections.
Sign now to call on President Biden and Congress to extend its workplace protections to interns, and end worker exploitation in the American Jobs Plan!
