An internship that involves wine and Facebook

Assistant manager Rima Campbell taps that cask.

Wine is usually something you require when doing an internship and have to numb the pain of working for no pay. But what if the internship is paid, and comes with some sort of access to loads of wine? The Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg is hiring a social media intern, which involves being “entrenched in the social media space and able to navigate and engage in the latest trends,” which, unless you’re reading the hard-to-find printed version of Brokelyn, you’re probably experienced in. It’s a 10 hour a week gig. The pay rate isn’t stated, but is it legal to pay interns in samples?
