Work 20 hours a week....get paid nothing

The debate about paid versus unpaid internships has been renewed. This time an academic has chimed in on the debate.

Daniel Akst makes some relevant points in this editorial, but there is still no way around the obvious -- if internships included a "you must pay the student provision", then most internships would go away.

Is that fair? Probably not. But that right now is the way it is.
