After Chuck’s Q&A on Twitter yesterday, the interns at MTLBlog have gone on strike.
“The trainwreck was too much to handle” says one of the interns, who wanted to remain anonymous. “The 10 of us wrote so many answers while Chuck was outside for a 3-hour-long smoke break led us to severe carpal tunnel injuries. One of the girls broke her faux-nail and it came flying on her left eye. She couldn’t see anything but she kept typing, the poor girl… We asked if we could have the next couple of days off to rest. Chuck said no.”
The MTLBlog interns now demand 3$ per Tweet and an hourly salary. No answers on the subject from Chuck Lapointe yet.
