The debate rages on re: unpaid internships…are they valuable experience or pure exploitation?
Eric Glatt, an unpaid intern on the set of “Black Swan,” is risking his career in the film industry by standing up and saying he was exploited by not being paid. So he launched a lawsuit on behalf of America’s unpaid interns. Now, other interns are following suit and demanding that their work be paid for as well.
The question is: will it become a movement, or will young people give into the fear of being “blacklisted” in these tiny industries and a bleak economy?
