Charities should pay interns a living wage

41 Signatures Goal: 100

Already some NGOs/ charities such as Fair Pensions, the One Society and People & Planet pay their interns.

Nopaynoway argue that by refusing to pay for the work that interns and voluntary workers do (when that work would otherwise be done by an employee), many charities are:

avoiding the need to create entry-level jobs

making the sector exclusive - only those that can afford to work for free can enter it.

Nopaynoway are by no means against the spirit of volunteering and understand the restrictions on charities due to funding etc. but believe that the larger ones, that already operate as big businesses should be subject to the same legislation as the private sector.


Please sign here if you believe that large well-funded charities should pay their interns.
