Half Of Us Did This Illegal Act After We Graduated College. It's Not Okay.

Half Of Us Did This Illegal Act After We Graduated College. It's Not Okay.

 If you liked this cartoon (and who wouldn't — unless you've hired interns and didn't pay them in which case BOO) you should like its creator, Matt Bors. He's super, ain't he?

ORIGINAL: By Matt Bors. Originally published on Medium's "The Nib", which you should read all the time because it is fantastic. You totally should like Matt on Facebook, too. Also, see what you can do to end unpaid internships by visiting the Fair Pay Campaign.

Does this even include student teachers, who must work a semester for free, still pay their living expenses, drive up to two hours a daily, AND pay for a college class the same semester? This abuse has been going on for decades. My son, a chem E major, interned three semesters, and was well-paid every time, including a housing allowance and transportation. Why do we treat some jobs with respect, and treat others like they don't matter at all?
