Unpaid Interns Win Major Ruling for ‘Black Swan’ — Now What?

Uh-oh.

Fox  violated U.S. and New York minimum wage laws by not paying two production interns for work done on the set of “Black Swan.”  If you’re organizing filing cabinets, making photocopies, taking lunch orders, answering phones – and deriving little educational benefit from the program – seems like you should be getting paid.

Duh.

A little ammo for negotiations the next time someone asks you to work for free.
