After having their hypocrisy pointed out, when it was shown The Nation didn’t pay their interns even minimum wage, it ultimately resulted in The Nation hiring less interns.
In a statement to Propublica, The Nation confirmed one of the basic criticisms that conservatives, and our faithful sidekick, logic, make about raising the minimum wage:
“We are not yet certain how this will work out long term, but for the fall we are anticipating hiring ten interns rather than twelve.”
Liberals and economics do not mix.
