Federal Intern Protection Act

Your DGB for today is to contact your congressional representative and ask them to vote yes on H.R. 653; the Federal Intern Protection Act.

This bill, introduced by Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD-7), explicitly extends federal employment discrimination and mistreatment protections to unpaid interns in the workplace. It passed the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on April 4th and is headed for the House floor. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/653

You can use Countable or Resistbot to register your support for this act, which White House interns will probably need when the administration inevitably gets grabby.
