News Article About Abuse of Unpaid Internships a Good Reason to Plug Our Paid Internships!
An interesting New York Times article carried in today’s Post-Dispatch discusses the growing issue (those who advocate greater government involvement in the economy would say “problem”) of unpaid internships. Basically, some people are accusing companies of hiring recent graduates for an internship and essentially employing them as unpaid laborers. The point is entirely moot for the Show-Me Institute, though, because, according to the article, nonprofits can have as many unpaid internships as we want. But that is also moot, because we have paid internships! And, given that we are now located in the city, interns even get to pay the earnings tax on on their internship salary!
Seriously, I used to be a Show-Me Institute intern, and this is a fun place to experience. I hope you’ll consider applying if an internship is something you are considering. Former and current interns, please blast away in the comments section! I am looking your way, Phil, Jacob, Calvin, Nick, Dan, Patrick, Steve, Clovis, Charis, Caitlin, Alyssa, Kristen, Audrey, Abhi, Maurice, Kathleen, Matt, and more.
P.S.: “I get the car!”
