When I first heard about this story on the radio ... my jaw hit the floor. Really? An intern at one of the largest magazine companies in the country was suing for minimum wage because she was "doing work that she wasn't hired for" ?
I completed (4) unpaid internships prior to my being hired at my current position. Three of the four were a complete waste of my time and did not foster my education in the field.
So what say ye? Did your internships have relevance to your industry or were you really just an unpaid lackie, like I was in so many cases?
