The WMF is advertising for a "Legal Fellow", a pretentious term for student intern. The lucky appointee will work a 40 hour week for 12-16 weeks for, er, nothing at all. No, wait, " the Legal Department will work with a fellow's university to facilitate earning academic credits and/or receiving funding". So they'll help you to ask someone else for money. We note that the WMF can afford to pay outside legal firms $750K a year but can't afford to pay anything to an intern: the minimum rate would be $440 a week, say $7000 for the stint. So this progressive foundation, that seeks to make the world a better place, plans to reinforce privilege by making sure that it offers a boost to the career of an aspiring lawyer only to someone who is already rich enough to live in San Francisco and work for free.
