Critics Demand Dems Live on Wage Paid to Interns: Nothing

Democrats call for wage hikes while their interns work for free

Congressional Democrats Tim Ryan and Jan Schakowsky have pledged to live on $77 weekly budget as part of “Live the Wage” channel designed to draw attention to the minimum wage. However, critics say that if the Democrats really wanted to understand the plight of the common man, they should live on the wage their interns are paid: $0 per week.
