Black Swan Interns Seeking Class-Action Lawsuit to Curb Exploitation of Unpaid Labor

"The only thing I learned on this internship was to be more picky in choosing employment opportunities... Black Swan had more than $300 million in revenues. If they paid us, it wouldn't make a big difference to them, but it would make a huge difference to us." Recent college grad Alex Footman didn't pick up many useful lessons during his time making coffee on the set of the Darren Aronofsky Oscar pic, but he and a fellow intern are attempting to change how Hollywood exploits labor does business. Good luck to the little guys? [NYT via MovieCityNews]

    You make coffe dude, settle down. They didn't pay you any of that 300 mil just like you didn't earn any of it.
