Sen. Bernie Sanders has not dropped out of the race for president yet, but he might be hinting at a shift away from the campaign.
These internships are paid. However, they pay $12 an hour, which is less than the $15 minimum wage increase Sanders has called for as a living wage.
Some people on Twitter are calling Sanders out:
@SenSanders So “Fight For 15” doesn’t apply to your interns.

@SenSanders do y’all pay at least $15 an hour?

Others are just excited by the prospect of possibly working for the progressive:

I’m definitely considering applying for the Bernie Sanders paid internship. It would only be 3 months yet it pays more than I make now+Bern!
