Unpaid Internships: Invaluable Opportunity or Source Of Free Labor?
Interns On paper, internships are a clear win-win for students and businesses alike. But in this new economy, with millions of Americans still out of work and budgets as tight as ever, are interns increasingly becoming simply a source of free labor for companies?
