I Have a Question about Unpaid Internships

I read this editorial in the June 27, 2012 issue of The Architect's Newspaper.


Printed in the July 18, 2012 issue was this response:


Which begs the question: What is it that students are doing in school (aside from spending years of their lives and going into debt tens of thousands of dollars) if, upon graduation, they are so useless that their employers have no good reason to award a paycheck?

Did you work an unpaid internship? You may be interested in this class-action lawsuit.
