mark, can i have a job?

file this under depressing:  facebook interns make $25,000 more than the average  american worker which means you need to seriously rethink everything about the choices you’ve made.

business insider magazine cites salary information gleaned from glassdoor.com in making the claim that interns at the company make an average of $67,000 per year.  that’s just about twenty five thousand dollars a year more than the $47,000 that the social security administration says the average american worker takes home.

interns generally are young, motivated college kids who know their way around software and computers.  they are in such demand that companies like facebook, google, and microsoft pay them while they’re still in school and even encourage them to drop out of school altogether.  product designers, research assistants and software engineers expect to make, on average, over a hundred thousand smackers.

in addition to the george washingtons, interns at facebook get "normal" employee benefits of an iphone, a laptop, access to their gym and three meals a day at the company's cafeteria.
