Good enough for thee but not for me

Mother Jones, a constant critic of Walmart low pay, isn't exactly enriching it's lowest paid employees...........

Many liberal publications fail to pay their interns living wages, despite decrying employees’ pay at companies like Wal-Mart and McDonalds, Vice’s Charles Davis highlighted Monday.

While failing to pay a “living wage,” at least one liberal publication, Davis reported, advised its interns or “fellows” to get on food stamps. That publication? Mother Jones, ironically named after labor leader Mary Harris Jones.

“During our first meeting with HR at Mother Jones, we were advised to sign up for food stamps,” one former intern told Davis.
