The Kardashians are worth over $1 billion. But they want you to work for them for free.

The Kardashian-Jenner family is worth well over $1 billion. According to Forbes, the richest, Kylie Jenner, is worth over $900 million. While the poorest, Rob Kardashian, is barely scarping by with just $10 million.

Poor Rob, someone should start him a GoFundMe page.

As any insanely rich person knows, the best way to stay wealthy is to keep your filthy lucre to yourself.


One way the employees of Jenner Communications are keeping their Hermès Birkin purses full is by not paying the help.

A job posting recently found at EntertainmentCareers.net shows the Kardashians are looking for an unpaid intern to run with errands, wrap gifts, and help with the kids’ toys.

A big qualifier is you must be a student. Which makes sense if you’re pursuing a bachelor’s degree in gift wrapping, which isn’t currently offered at USC.

The job posting made its way to Reddit where the forum’s users were beside themselves.

“So the Kardashians have people working for them, not for free, but paying university rates, and possibly going into debt to wrap presents and run errands?” Reddit user, throwaway_circus, wrote.

“It's not even not paying them. If the students are doing this for college credit, they are PAYING to work, possibly by borrowing money and accumulating student loan debt,” the user continued.

Another Redditor wasn't shocked in the least.

“You’re surprised the rich have found a way to effectively enslave the poor in such a way that the poor are supposed to be thankful?” Reddit user,  PelagianEmpiricist, wrote

Another user posted federal Department of Labor unpaid intern guidelines, and the job appears to be in violation of at least two of the seven.

2. The extent to which the internship provides training that would be similar to that which would be given in an educational environment, including the clinical and other hands-on training provided by educational institutions.

6. The extent to which the intern’s work complements, rather than displaces, the work of paid employees while providing significant educational benefits to the intern.

The super sleuths at Reddit also uncovered another Jenner Communications posting for an unpaid intern.

This unpaid internship involves “helping with the dog.” Looks like the perfect opportunity for anyone studying to be a veterinarian.

For those who wouldn’t mind working for America’s reality royal family for free, be warned, the Glassdoor reviews for Jenner Communications are terrible.

"Stay far, far away" a former intern wrote. "The people working there are incredibly mean and don't take time to answer questions. No one cares about you or cares to properly train you."

Another former intern rated the experience as "horrible" and said, "Other people who worked there were not very nice and were snobby."

Between the new normal that is working from home and e-learning for students of all ages, having functional electronic devices is extremely important. But that doesn't mean needing to run out and buy the latest and greatest model. In fact, this cycle of constantly upgrading our devices to keep up with the newest technology is an incredibly dangerous habit.

The amount of e-waste we produce each year is growing at an increasing rate, and the improper treatment and disposal of this waste is harmful to both human health and the planet.

So what's the solution? While no one expects you to stop purchasing new phones, laptops, and other devices, what you can do is consider where you're purchasing them from and how often in order to help improve the planet for future generations.

The epidemic of violence against Indigenous women in America is one of the country's most disturbing trends. A major reason it persists is because it's rarely discussed outside of the native community.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, murder is the third-leading cause of death among American Indian and Alaska Native women under age 19.

Women who live on some reservations face rates of violence that are as much as ten times higher than the national average.

The legality of abortion is one of the most polarized debates in America—but it doesn’t have to be.

People have big feelings about abortion, which is understandable. On one hand, you have people who feel that abortion is a fundamental women’s rights issue, that our bodily autonomy is not something you can legislate, and that those who oppose abortion rights are trying to control women through oppressive legislation. On the other, you have folks who believe that a fetus is a human individual first and foremost, that no one has the right to terminate a human life, and that those who support abortion rights are heartless murderers.

Then there are those of us in the messy middle. Those who believe that life begins at conception, that abortion isn’t something we’d choose—and we’d hope others wouldn’t choose—under most circumstances, yet who choose to vote to keep abortion legal.

Every day, I wake up feeling like Peeta at the end of "The Hunger Games" series asking Katniss what's real and what's not real.

The first thing I do is run through a series of thoughts to orient myself to this bizarre reality we're currently in: "What day is it today? Umm...Tuesday, I think. Who is president of the United States? Donald Trump. Wait, is that right? That can't be right....No, yes, that's right. Wow. Are we still in the middle of a global pandemic that has killed 200,000+ Americans in six months? Yes. Are people still acting like it's a hoax? Apparently so. Is there still a ridiculous number of people who believe that an elite cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles is secretly running the world and trafficking children to harvest fear hormones from their blood, and that Donald Trump is going to save us all from it? Yup."

Then I lie there in dumbfounded disbelief before semi-rallying: "Okay, here we go."

It's not really okay, though. How any of us are expected to be able to function in this reality is beyond me. When we've gone beyond merely having different perspectives on issues and instead are living in completely different versions of reality, I can't figure out how to feel okay. Or, to be more accurate, when some of us are living in objective reality and a not-insignificant-enough number of us are living in a completely made-up land of alternative facts and perpetual gaslighting, it's hard not to feel like I'm the one losing my grip.
