How do you feel about unpaid internships?
landon 46 weeks ago
Apparently Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In organization is looking for an unpaid intern to work there. Ms. Sandberg made a measly $92,000,000, but you know, times are tough, so there isn’t enough left over to pay some intern $10 an hour. I used to be ok with unpaid internships, viewing them as more as an opportunity for an unskilled but potentially talented individual to develop some practical skills and experience. I’ve changed my view, frankly, and now see it as a way for companies to get free labor. What do you think? Are unpaid internships a valuable learning experience or a way to exploit young people?
