Stop Them

There are a lot of things wrong with unpaid internships, such as, you know, the exploitive use of free labor in violation of the law, but they're also a way of perpetuating the class system in certain kinds of industries. For some, if the choice is a prestigious internship or McDonalds, McDonalds will win, because mommy and daddy can't and won't lend them $25,000. And really, these places can't afford to even pay minimum freaking wage? They're just assholes.
