Sasha Grey

May 05, 2013                    12:00AM

SASHA Grey admits she can feel shy about asking for what she wants during sex.

This is a woman who has starred in more than 200 adult films, and who, at 18, in her first shoot, went off-script and requested her Italian co-star, Rocco Siffredi, become even more extreme during one scene.

“Even women who really are confident in their sexuality, or know what they like, we’re still sort of submissive in the sense that we always want the man to make the first move.

“And when you find a partner you match with sexually, you often let the man take the lead and then that becomes dangerous, because it [gets] repetitive,” she explains.

So even porn stars find it tricky to shake things up in the bedroom?

“It’s been difficult for me, in the past, to demand what I want, especially when you love somebody, because you want to choose your words carefully,” she says.

This would come as a surprise to people, I suggest. Grey laughs: “Well, porn exists in a place where I could do what I wanted.”

This burning need to explore her sexual horizons is what propelled 18-year-old Grey – or rather, Marina Ann Hantzis from Sacramento – towards the harsh lights and flimsy plot-lines of the Los Angeles porn industry in the first place.

“I’d only had sex with a few people before I got into porn. I was very shy, I was the last of my friends to lose my virginity [at 16]. I started having fantasies before I’d even had sex.

Then I met someone I was able to explore with – things most people today are comfortable with doing – but I wanted more. I confided in a couple of girlfriends and they thought I was crazy, so it only made me feel more self-conscious.

“One of the main reasons I got into porn is that I wanted to explore those things safely, because how does an 18-year-old girl go and find somebody to explore sexually with? I don’t trust the internet enough to go and meet people with the same kinks as me.”

After a few years churning through puntastic titles including Face Invaders 4 and Sasha Grey’s Anatomy, she retired at 23, feeling she had “accomplished everything I could as a performer”.

Now, along with writing her debut erotic novel The Juliette Society (“I’m way too young for a memoir”) Grey is trying to build her non-X-rated acting career, having entered the mainstream consciousness with two pivotal roles: playing herself in Entourage, and a high-class escort in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience.

She recently worked on a Spanish thriller called Open Windows opposite Elijah Wood.

The protagonist of The Juliette Society, Catherine, is a young film student who is drawn into a secret sex club. Grey – who has been dating her camera-operator boyfriend for almost a year – wrote the book because she saw a void in contemporary erotica.

“A lot of those novels exist in a hyper-fantasy world, much like romantic comedies. And who doesn’t like romantic comedies? But I wanted to create something where people really felt like this was something that could happen to them. My character isn’t out there looking for Mr Right.”

In the book, Grey controversially claims sex and violence are two sides of the same coin. As Catherine delves into the sexual underworld, there are graphic descriptions of women being restrained and much more – think Fifty Shades turned up to 11.

Has Grey met women who find this erotic? “Definitely,” she says emphatically. “Something might sound completely offensive to one person, but you have to understand there’s an entire community of people around the world who have been ostracised for their sexual kinks.”

For every woman who has the self-possession to indulge her sexual proclivities on camera à la Grey, there are plenty more who are ashamed to go there even in their fantasies. Grey hopes to help change this.

“It’s a community and a sexual interest that has long been criticised, which is why Fifty Shades of Grey is so important, because it’s addressing a facet of people’s sexuality and allowing people to talk about it openly.”

Self-expression and open-mindedness are one thing, but I mention to Grey my doubts about elements of that sexual underworld, particularly the proliferation of extreme pornography on the internet, which, regardless of the director’s intentions, can be enjoyed through a misogynistic filter.

“I… ” Grey pauses. “I think the biggest thing is, you can’t control who watches porn, so it’s a shame that some people will go into their sexual adult life thinking that all women enjoy being tied up. But I think that’s a very small percentage of people.

“You have more men thinking women don’t need foreplay before sex,” she says with a big laugh. “That’s the reality.” Fair point.

7/5/2013           12:00 A.M. ET

All the votes have been cast for the 2013 All-Star Game’s starting spots, and the baseball world now awaits Saturday evening’s announcement of the final tallies.

The All-Stars will be unveiled at 6:30 p.m. ET on Saturday on the 2013 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show presented by Taco Bell, televised nationally on FOX.

Voting concluded at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday for the eight position players in each league, as well as the American League’s designated hitter. The winners will represent the two leagues in the All-Star Game at Citi Field on Tuesday, July 16.

As of the most recent voting updates announced earlier this week, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was the National League’s leading vote-getter with 5,093,645. Meanwhile, Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera led all of Major League Baseball with 5,844,165 votes.

The tightest races in each league appear to be for the final outfield spot. In an AL East showdown, Toronto’s Jose Bautista led Baltimore’s Nick Markakis by fewer than 150,000 votes, with Mike Trout and Adam Jones leading the pack among AL outfielders.

The race for the NL’s final two starting outfield spots was even tighter, as Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Upton and Bryce Harper were separated by a total of 26,213 votes. As of Monday, Harper was the odd man out.

The wait for the news of the NL’s starting second base spot is also sure to be tense, as the Reds’ Brandon Phillips hopes to hold off late charges from the Cardinals’ Matt Carpenter and the Giants’ Marco Scutaro.

From Saturday until Thursday, be sure to return to MLB.com and cast your 2013 All-Star Game Final Vote Sponsored by freecreditscore.com for the final player for each League’s All-Star roster.

The U.S. and Honduran coast guards helped look for the boat carrying Canadian Tasha Brown.

July 4, 2013            6:41 AM PT

A woman from Grand Forks, B.C., who was lost at sea off the coast of Honduras for four days says she never gave up hope.

Tasha Brown was with eight friends on a day trip off the coast of Honduras last Saturday, but their nine-metre boat ran out of gas on their way back in.

“We have, like, no idea where we are, we’re in the middle of the ocean, we drifted off in the middle of the night kinda thing,” she told CBC News.

Brown and her friends survived on rainwater from an ocean storm and a sea bird they caught for food.

She says they ran out of water Wednesday morning.

“We were all just dying of thirst,” she said. “There was a lot of praying going on, on that boat. We were all praying. I said a prayer, and I heard God say, ‘I’m going to give you one more chance and you just take it. You will know when you see it.’”

The group tried to flag down several passing ships to no avail. They were finally spotted about 100 kilometres from shore by a search plane on Wednesday.

“We were all screaming, yelling. I’m not going to lie, I actually cried a little bit.”

A rescue helicopter was dispatched to bring Brown and her friends back to land.

Brown, a medic who was in Honduras on a working holiday, says she escaped with only a sunburn and mild dehydration.

She plans to return to B.C. in the next few days.

Adly Mansour.jpg
11:50 a.m. EDT              July 4, 2013

Egypt’s top judge was sworn in as the nation’s interim president Thursday as military leaders pressed a crackdown on leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist party of deposed leader Mohammed Morsi.

Adly Mansour will be Egypt’s president until an election is held in the months ahead. No date has been set.

In his first remarks as the country’s new leader, Mansour, 67, head of the High Constitutional Court, praised the massive street demonstrations that led to Morsi’s ouster. He also hailed the youth behind the protests that began on June 30, saying they embodied “the nation’s conscience, its ambitions and hopes.”

“The most glorious thing about June 30 is that it brought together everyone without discrimination or division,” he said. “I offer my greetings to the revolutionary people of Egypt.”

Morsi repeatedly clashed with the judiciary, particularly the Constitutional Court, during his year in office. He accused the judges of being anti-democracy and loyalists of former autocrat Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted in a 2011 uprising. The judges repeatedly challenged the Brotherhood’s policies and its shift toward Islamist law.

An economy battered by years of political upheaval added to the political stresses. Finally, after days of widespread unrest that brought unprecedented numbers of Egyptians to the streets, the army this week suspended the nation’s constitution and removed Morsi, the nation’s first democratically elected leader, from office.

There was joy in the capital, but also a sense of unease as reality set in that the nation’s first freely elected leader was pushed from power.

“It is going the wrong way. It’s a shame,” said Muslim Brotherhood supporter, Ahmed Hassan. He said he believes the military does not respect human rights, and he fears the sweeping arrests that already have begun.

Egyptian security officials announced the arrest of the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, Mohammed Badie, one of about 200 Brotherhood members and other Islamist leaders on the military’s wanted list.

The movement’s TV station and other Islamist channels have been cut off, and some Brotherhood figures are barred from leaving the country.

The Brotherhood announced it would boycott the new military-sponsored political process and called on supporter to restrain themselves and not use violence.

“We declare our uncompromising rejection of the military coup staged against the elected president and the will of the nation and refuse to participate in any activist with the usurping authorities,” said the statement, which the group’s mufti Abdel-Rahman el-Barr read to the Morsi’s supporters staging a days-long sit-in in Cairo.

The political tumult is the latest turn in the turbulent two-and-a-half years since Mubarak was ousted from power. On Monday, Egypt’s army gave Morsi a 48-hour ultimatum to make major political concessions or resign. Morsi held firm to his post, repeating in a speech that he would protect his “constitutional legitimacy.”

As the deadline Wednesday crept closer, ElBaradei, head of the National Salvation Front, which is the main coalition of opposition groups, met with army chief Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. The Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar and the head of the Coptic church also attended.

Hours later, the army announced its plan, and capital exploded in celebration, with fireworks erupting across the sky and thousands crowding into Tahrir Square. Flags waved from countless windows.

Morsi rose to the presidency through the Muslim Brotherhood, an 85-year-old movement whose members long suffered from repression and arrests, including under dictator Hosni Mubarak until he was ousted in 2011.

Morsi’s backers now are decrying the coup and Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El-Haddad said the events signify old-regime retaliation.

“It is difficult to see something healthy coming out of this in the short term,” the International Crisis Group said in a statement.

“[This is] a blow to Egypt’s fragile democracy, regardless of what one thinks of [Morsi’s] presidency, entrenching the view, for some, that mass protests backed by the army can trump the ballot box, and, in other quarters, that investing in a peaceful democratic process is simply not worthwhile,” the statement said.

A priority now should be trying to avoid bloodshed, the group said.

At least 10 people died overnight and over 400 were injured, according to reports, in clashes that erupted in pockets across the country between opponents and supporters of Morsi.

Almost 50 people in total have been killed in clashes since Sunday.

“I think the next thing is how to prepare,” said opposition figure Mohamed Abou El Ghar, who is part of the coalition that developed the transition plan.

“We will have first a presidential election, or we will have the constitution first — changing items in the constitution,” he said.

Precisely when a fresh presidential election will be held is not clear, but many of Morsi’s opponents in Tahrir Square Wednesday did not seem concerned about who specifically will rule in the long term.

“I want a new president, but not someone from the Brotherhood,” said Roudina Ahmed, 20. She said she would be fine with Mohamed ElBaradei running the country, or Ahmed Shafiq, who ran in the election last year against Morsi.

President Obama on Wednesday ordered that U.S. assistance to Egypt, which totals $1.6 billion annually, be reviewed.

“We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution,” Obama said in a statement.

He called on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly in returning full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government through an inclusive and transparent process. He also urged that arbitrary arrests of Morsi supporters be avoided.

“The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people,” Obama said.

June 29, 2013           12:16PM

OPPOSITION Leader Tony Abbott gave a “green light to the baying wolves” to attack Julia Gillard on the basis of gender, senior Labor Minister Penny Wong says.

Senator Wong, South Australia’s most powerful Federal Labor representative, switched her support from Ms Gillard to Kevin Rudd in Wednesday’s ballot.

She says as a feminist she had particularly supported Ms Gillard but circumstances forced her to make one of the hardest decisions of her career. In an exclusive interview with The Advertiser she talked about how the gender wars began, and how her support for Ms Gillard ended.

In her final statement Ms Gillard said gender had played a role in how she was treated.

“(The) reaction to being the first female Prime Minister does not explain everything about my Prime Ministership, nor does it explain nothing about my Prime Ministership,” she said.

Senator Wong agreed with that sentiment, and when asked whether she also agreed with Ms Gillard that it will now be easier for Australia to have another female Prime Minister she said it would be “more possible”.

“How hard or easy that is in part depends on how we as a community be honest about what happened and how we can as a Parliament become a little more bipartisan in our desire to enable women to succeed … our willingness to implicitly and explicitly prevent sexism and misogyny dominating,” she said.

“There was implicit permission and at times explicit permission to go her.

“I would say it is a legitimisation of invective and a legitimisation of prejudice.

“If you have the alternative Prime Minister calling her the stuff he did … the signals he gave with Julia that `no doesn’t mean no’, `make an honest woman of herself’, standing in front of signs that say ‘bitch’ and ‘witch’, not coming out and really slamming the personal abuse of some of the talkback shows.

“That is a green light to the baying wolves. And when you’re in a position of leadership you’ve got a role.. as a gatekeeper against that.”

Senator Wong said accusing women of using the gender card was nothing more than a silencing technique. On her decision to support Mr Rudd in the ballot that delivered him power, she said: “The first thing I’d say is that through this I really tried to keep my own counsel.

“I voted for Julia on the last occasion because I still believed that she was the person who should be Prime Minister and out of personal loyalty, and as the first female Prime Minister, I thought it was important to continue to support her,” she said.

“Then I gradually became more and more concerned at the political position of the Labor Party. “Particularly in this last week I’d been weighing up what I saw as my two loyalties, which previously had been aligned. My personal loyalty to her and my loyalty to the party.”

For Senator Wong, those two loyalties stopped being “aligned”.

In the weeks leading up to the spill there were a series of incredibly bad polls for the Labor Party, that showed them heading for what Mr Rudd has called a “catastrophic defeat”.

One poll revealed by The Advertiser last week showed that Labor would keep just two seats in South Australia with Julia Gillard at the helm.

The internal polling found Labor would retain just 30 to 35 seats nationally, and that only Kingston, held by Amanda Rishworth and Port Adelaide, held by Mark Butler, were safe.

That would mean Kate Ellis would lose the seat of Adelaide, Steve Georganas would lose Hindmarsh, Nick Champion would lose Wakefield, and Tony Zappia would lose Makin.

That and other polls suggest the surge away from Labor would also deliver the Coalition control or effective control of the Senate.

Senator Wong would be safe as she is number one on the Senate ticket for South Australia.

Senator Don Farrell, one of the men who helped give Ms Gillard the Prime Ministership and one who stood by her in the final vote, is second on the ticket but could still have had reason to feel nervous.

But Senator Wong said her decision was more complex than just a reaction to bad polls.

“There’s a lot of discussion about it being poll driven, but how I think about it is where you have a role as a custodian of the Labor Party and part of that job is to make sure the Labor Party is as strong as it can be and remains viable in hard times,” she said.

“And I wouldn’t be in the Labor Party if I didn’t think Australia is a better place for there being Labor Governments.”

Without Labor values, Australians would not have Medicare and superannuation and other crucial social infrastructure, she argued.

Senator Wong is now the first female Leader in the Senate, as her predecessor Stephen Conroy quit once Mr Rudd got the votes. Asked whether she conceded that being given the top job in the Senate after switching her vote looked like a deal, Senator Wong said her elevation, which was voted on unanimously, was the last thing on her mind.

“They misunderstand why we do what we do, why we’re members of the Labor Party,” she said.

“It’s not about our jobs. It’s about the Australian people.

“It wasn’t front of mind. I had not actually turned my mind to anything other than the leadership.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd put same-sex marriage back on the agenda yesterday, pointing out that he believes he is the first Australian Prime Minister to be a fully-fledged supporter.

Senator Wong had agitated internally for a switch in the Labor Party’s position on same-sex marriage and has been a powerful voice for gay rights, gay marriage and against bigotry in recent times.

Ms Gillard had said she was not in favour of change, often citing that the idea that marriage should be between a man and a woman was the traditional position.

Mr Rudd, on the other hand, had a high-profile change of mind recently.

He wrote he had “come to the conclusion that church and state can have different positions and practices on the question of same sex marriage”.

“I believe the secular Australian state should be able to recognise same sex marriage,” he said.

Senator Wong said that had had no impact on her decision to swing her support behind him, and that changing the law on same-sex marriage would need bipartisan support.

The Texas anti-abortion bill, which threatened to close nearly all of the abortion clinics in the state and prompted an 11-hour filibuster by state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), is dead, The Austin American-Statesman reported.

Lawmakers had to vote on Senate Bill 5 before the special session’s end at 12 a.m. local time. However, more than 400 protesters halted the proceedings 15 minutes before the roll call could be completed with what they called “a people’s filibuster,”The Associated Press reported.

The crowd of demonstrators in the capitol cried “Shame! Shame!” when Davis’ filibuster was halted by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who ruled that her discussion of mandatory ultrasound testing was off-topic. Then the protesters roared after state Sen. Leticia Van De Putte asked, “At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?”

Their cries continued to echo inside the chamber — and over a livestream watched by thousands around the world — until after the midnight deadline passed.

Although some Republican lawmakers later claimed the bill had passed in time, Democrats denied that the vote was completed before the clock ran out on the session.

A time stamp showing the vote completed after midnight was the deciding factor. “This will not become law,” Sen. John Whitmire (D), told The Austin American-Statesman.

In response, the crowd of protesters gathered in the capitol cheered and began singing “The Eyes Of Texas,” the alma mater of the University of Texas at Austin.

According to The Texas Tribune, Dewhurst was less than pleased by the evening’s turn of events. After ruling that the time on SB 5 had expired, he told reporters that “an unruly mob using Occupy Wall Street tactics” had derailed legislation that was designed to protect women and babies.

The legislation would have prohibited abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, regulated first-trimester abortion clinics as ambulatory surgical centers and restricted access to medication abortions. Had it passed, nearly all of the clinics in the state would have been shuttered.

Dewhurst also hinted that Gov. Rick Perry may call another special session to get the bill passed, saying: “It’s over. It’s been fun. But see you soon.”

Despite a long day of filibustering, Davis was upbeat when she greeted the crowd of supporters, who applauded the senator and chanted her name.

“Today was democracy in action,” Davis said. “You all are the voices we were speaking for from the floor.”

Jainna Patel claims her Bell Mobility internship broke labour laws

June 24, 2013           2:20 AM PT

Two former interns have filed complaints with government against Bell Mobility, alleging the telecom giant broke labour laws by not paying them for work they did for the company.

“It felt like I was sitting in an office as an employee, doing regular work. It didn’t feel like a sort of training program,” said Jainna Patel, 24, who was an unpaid intern with Bell for five weeks last year.

“They just squeezed out of you every hour they could get and never showed any intent of paying.”

She filed a complaint with federal authorities in May 2012, which has yet to be resolved.

Patel and others were “associates” in a Bell program that invites 280 post-secondary grads per year to work voluntarily in Bell’s Mississauga, Ont., complex, for three to four months at a time, on projects that are supposed to enhance their future careers.

Voluntary program

“Bell’s Professional Management Program (PMP) is a voluntary training program for post-secondary students, recent graduates and those in career transition,” said a statement from Bell spokesman Albert Lee.

“Participants get the opportunity to learn in a corporate environment with advanced technology and support from management and the Bell Mobility team.”

Patel said it was that promise that kept young people signing up.

“Who wants to say ‘I’m working at McDonalds nine to five because I need money to pay off school?’” she asked. “People are more proud to say, ‘I’m working with Bell. I’m an intern. It’s OK even if I’m unpaid, because it’s Bell Mobility.’”

In reality, the program was not as advertised, Patel said, and she didn’t learn or benefit from it.

Instead, Patel said, she and the others were expected to do menial jobs for Bell — such as phone surveys and electronic market research — sometimes for more than 12 hours a day.

“My dad was like, ‘You are not getting paid? I don’t understand,’” said Patel. “He’s like, is this a scam? What are you doing?’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s Bell. It’s not a scam.’”

She said people in the program were bright and ambitious, so when they were asked to stay after hours — to do phone surveys, for example — they wouldn’t argue.

“We were told certain tasks had to be done, you know, that day. You’d have to stay. You’d have to stay until 10-12 o’clock,” she said.

‘Afraid to say no’

“People were afraid to say no. My first week there I talked to one of the girls and she was there until about 3 a.m.”

The other intern Go Public interviewed — who spoke on condition of anonymity — said he also felt taken advantage of. He is now 27, and said he spent two months in the program, in the fall of 2010.

“You were sold on the Bell brand. Being able to work at the largest telecom in the country in a modern office,” he said, adding that some people stayed as long as six months.

“Most of these kids don’t have other opportunities. These are ambitious young people who just go back to their parents’ basement … it was very, very disappointing.”

He said he was assigned to do tedious market research and that he and others were chastised if they were late or didn’t want to work overtime.

“We went through every school in the country and mapped it. And then put it on a grid that they used internally,” he said. “I was told it was so they knew where to place cell towers and also where to place advertising.”

He said he only recently filed his complaint with government, when he realized he may have a claim for unpaid wages.

“I didn’t learn anything,” he said. “I learned not to trust corporations. I learned how life works. Anything I learned professionally was from the other interns.”

Patel’s complaint, filed with the Department of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, claims Bell owes her almost $2,500.

“You would think that a large corporation has the funds to, you know, pay working employees to get work done,” she said. “If it was strictly a learning-based program, it would have been different.”

In May of this year, federal authorities wrote to Bell, directing the company to pay Patel, or submit reasons why it disputes her claim.

Go Public asked Bell about this case, but its statement didn’t address her complaint directly.

“The purpose of the PMP… is to grow participants’ experience and skills by learning in a real-world business setting,” Bell responded. “It’s important to note that the program doesn’t replace any Bell employees or support or benefit any of Bell’s business operations.”

Pressure from manager

The telecom’s intern program is run by Henry Mar, a manager who the interns said runs Bell’s marketing intelligence division. Go Public asked several times to speak to Mar, but received no response.

Patel claims, when she told Mar she was leaving, he tried to talk her into keeping quiet, warning her if she went to authorities it would hurt the program.

“He said, ‘What about all the paperwork you are going to create for the program?’ and things like that and ‘What if I have to close down the program?’”

She said she felt so intimidated, at one point she broke down and cried.

“It felt very intimidating to be in the room with Henry one on one. I shed tears,” Patel said, adding she stood her ground anyway.

“He never showed any signs of backing off. He would constantly stare me down.”

‘Explosive growth’ in internships

Toronto lawyer Andrew Langille has studied the laws regarding internships and has helped interns with claims against several Canadian companies.

Overall, he estimates up to 300,000 young people are now working as unpaid interns in Canada. He suggests the vast majority of those arrangements are illegal.

“My estimates are somewhere above 90 per cent should be paid and they are not being paid,” said Langille.

In Ontario, provincially regulated employers (not telecoms) have to meet six conditions to justify not paying an intern, including giving training that benefits the intern and reaping no benefit from the work the intern does. However, Langille said, many companies now flout those rules.

“We’ve seen explosive growth within intern culture in the last 10 years in Canada and particularly in the wake of the global financial crisis,” he said.

“Employers decided to use the poor economic conditions and the poor labour market as a carte blanche to begin replacing paid employees with unpaid ones.”

Kyle Iannuzzi filed a complaint with Ontario authorities against his former employer and won. He worked as an unpaid intern for Platinum Events Group, an event planning company, in 2011. After he won his claim, the owner was forced to pay him $959.40 in back pay.

“I was taken advantage of. I was exploited … there’s no reason in one of the richest countries in the world that people should be working for free,” he said.

For federally regulated companies like Bell, the Canada Labour Code doesn’t spell out specific rules for interns per se. However, Langille said, case law makes it clear almost all work should be paid for.

“If you are out of school and you are just providing free work for an employer, then it is typically illegal,” said Langille, who added that he’s heard more complaints about Bell’s internship program than any other.

Calls for change

“Is it permissible that a company that makes billions of dollars each year in profits is not paying the minimum wage? It’s ridiculous. A lot of the companies that are using unpaid labour have the ability to pay but choose not to — to save money.”

Federal MPs Andrew Cash (NDP) and Scott Brison (Liberal) have also taken up the cause. Cash plans to introduce a private member’s bill calling for tougher, clearer federal laws. Brison wants better tracking of the problem.

This comes as a U.S. court ruled this month that Fox Searchlight had violated labour laws by using unpaid interns to make the movie Black Swan. The U.K. government is also cracking down on unpaid labour there.

Patel and Iannuzzi hope they don’t get blacklisted for speaking out, instead they hope to inspire other interns to push back.

“If every intern who you know came across an unpaid internship stepped away from it, I think it would be quite a different story,” said Patel. “But with the job prospects and the economy right now it’s tough to do.”
