“We should get rid of unpaid internships. The children of the new upper class hardly ever get real jobs during summer vacation. It amounts to career assistance for rich, smart children. Those from the middle and working class, struggling to pay for college, can’t afford to work for free. Internships pave the way for children to move seamlessly from their privileged upbringings to privileged careers without ever holding a job that is boring or physically demanding.”
— GOOD does not pay its interns. It should!
