Representative Gwen Moore from Wisconsin’s fourth district got arrested today while participating in civil disobedience over the wages paid to fast food workers.

The protesters were demanding a wage of $15 per hour for what most probably consider to be an entry level job. However, Moore doesn’t even pay her own entry level employees at that rate.

She doesn’t pay them at all.

This looks like a much more demanding job than serving hamburgers.

Interns will work in a fast-paced Congressional Office, gaining valuable exposure and knowledge of the legislative process and the United States Congress. Intern responsibilities include greeting constituents, handling constituent phone calls, opening and sorting mail, giving Capitol Tours, and assisting staff with administrative tasks. Interns will also have the opportunity to conduct legislative research, assist with correspondence, as well as attend some Capitol Hill briefings, congressional hearings, and press events.  This internship is unpaid.

(Emphasis added.)

Safe bet.
