John’s article entitled “Wage & Hour Watch: Cheerleader Lawsuits And Hypocrisy On Intern Pay,” was posted on January 30, 2014.

The Employment Policies Institute has highlighted what it calls Maximum Hypocrisy on the Minimum Wage among 96 percent of the Senate and House sponsors of bills to raise the federal Fair Labor Standards Act‘s current rate, John wrote.
