Two former film students who worked as unpaid interns on the movie “Black Swan” have filed a federal lawsuit against the movie studio that they’re trying to turn into a class action suit. The intern system is supposed to trade unpaid work for experience in the movie business. The ex-interns claim “Black Swan” made over $300 million so they could have paid people to do the menial work. They claim they had to make coffee, get lunch, empty trash cans and clean the offices for free, and they learned nothing about the movie business.
- In my 45 years in Detroit radio, I had hundreds and hundreds of unpaid interns. If these guys win their lawsuit… I’m in big trouble!
- Monica Lewinsky is now claiming that she was forced to deliver pizza to the Oval Office for free and learned nothing about being President.
