The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) will reportedly begin paying interns in some form in the future after a protest from the current intern class resulted in a roundtable this week with the group’s chief, Rep. Ben Luján (D-N.M.).
During the meeting with interns on Thursday, Luján pledged that the DCCC is “going forward” with a plan to begin paying interns, adding that new intern classes would be offered a “stipend” for their services, The Huffington Post reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
The DCCC is headquartered in Washington, D.C., where high costs of living often mean that an unpaid internship is impossible without a second job or some sort of outside financial support.
A spokesperson for the DCCC told The Huffington Post that the organization is “reviewing its intern program” but declined to offer further details.
