We the undersigned hereby agree:
/ That we have been guilty of paying them too little, and keeping them on for too long, using them as a cheap source of labour.
/ That there is enough stress put on them to prove their creative worth without the additional stress of struggling to survive.
/ That, given their importance to our industry, we need to look after them better. As of now.
Therefore, we solemnly swear that,
from January 2018:
• We will pay our interns the current Living Wage (at least £10.20 per hour in London and £8.75 across the UK).
• We will pay them a freelance rate of £100 a day after 3 months of service.
