"Young people are stringing together multiple unpaid internships, and it’s not always helping them find a job — breaking an implicit promise that has drawn a generation of workers into offering their work for free."

Unpaid internships: the most precarious work of all | Toronto Star

Is anybody really goddamn surprised? A generation nobody seems to want to employ is instead offering their skills—by the way, they’re one of the most educated generations to date!—for free, because that’s what people told us we’d have to do to get good jobs (though they told us that about the expensive education, too, and we know where that went). And the same people who told us our educations weren’t good enough to get us in are now exploiting our free, trained labor and we’re still not good enough to hire? I’M SHOCKED.
