Philadelphia is making a concerted effort to support the ethical
treatment of professional designers and students in the workplace.
In an effort to achieve equitable practices, we are ceasing to post
unpaid internships to our job site and urging our members to pledge
compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Within these
standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Labor, students who
accept an internship at a private sector business must receive a
fair wage that meets the states' minimum requirements unless the
position meets certain stipulations.
For a position to be legally unpaid, the U.S. Department of
Labor states that a for profit or private sector business must meet
all of the following qualifications:
In an effort to uphold the value of design, support better
business practices and encourage meaningful experiences for
interns, AIGA Philadelphia is challenging all private sector
businesses to make a pledge to honor the law and fairly compensate
the design students they may employ in the future. If you wish to
publicly support this cause and agree to pledge this important
promise to your future employees, submit your Name, Position and
Company below. By clicking “I agree,” your name and company will be
included on this growing list of designers.
“The People, Companies and
Organizations below, have agreed to offer no less than the minimum
state wages to all their employees and to abide by the laws set
forth by the U.S. Department of Labor. They fully support AIGA
Philadelphia on these efforts and agree to state that their
internship positions meet these requirements in any job
We thank you for your support on this issue and for supporting
