UNITE HERE Summer Internship

Across North America, hotel workers are rising – organizing to lift one another out of poverty. Housekeepers, dishwashers, cooks are standing together to win the right to organize a union and improve their lives.
They need you – your energy, your education, your enthusiasm – to join them in that fight.
UNITE HERE is offering a six-week, paid Hotel Workers Rising Internship for passionate student leaders who will spend their summer in the struggle for justice.  Internship sites will be based in major cities across the U.S. and Canada.
The Hotel Workers Rising Internship will run in two sessions:
June 2nd-July 11th, 2008 and

July 21st-August 29th, 2008
Stipend: $450.00 per week.
Participants are responsible for their own housing.
