What is your opinion of the following job posting:

If there's a substantial contribution to the company's operations, then interns are entitled to at least a minimum wage.

I hope you continue doing what you do because it's so good!

After read a couple of the posts on your site these few days, and I really like your style of blogging. I added it to my favorites internet site list and will be checking back soon.

I’ve had three unpaid internships and the connections and experience I’ve gained have been well worth it. However, I don’t think it would have been possible if I were in a different financial situation. I think that companies that offer paid internships should take economic standing into consideration and offer paid internships to the financially disadvantaged.

On another note, there’s an interesting, brief video NY Creative Interns made that breaks the 6 requirements down for you. http://bit.ly/kfwPXE

So far it has been a great experience for me since I visited this website for the first time. Thank you for sharing such information.

Great Information... Please post more... Thank you

Marshall...you're retarded. Blogging, in this case, does not constitute legal advice. So, not illegal. Also, the Craigslist contact issue is only with regard to the job...not just because you want to chat. What's your number, again? ;)

Alicia...quit kidding yourself, sweetheart. You pulled yourself up by your bootstraps...great...so what? Pay your damn interns minimum wage or consider it a public service to your community by training them so you can hire them. Using unpaid interns to profit is illegal. Anyone who says otherwise is just an agency or scumbag who's upset over people becoming empowered.

DomesticGoddess...what the eff? Really? Sounds like you need some serious help - possibly psychological. There's something wrong with your daughter, allowing herself to be taken advantage of/abused like that.

uff the fluff

It does appear that many Attorneys General consider unpaid internship a violation of minimum wage laws.

Nice post. Thank you very much for sharing interesting post. Sometimes employer/employee relationships can be tricky, and issues often arise that can only be resolved by an attorney who practices labor law. While labor law lawyers can work for either an employer, employee or union, some choose to work on behalf of the employee. I have read more about How Labor Law Lawyers Protect the Rights of Employees at http://www.laborlawlawyers.org/How-Labor-Law-Lawyers-Protect-the-Rights-of-Employees.html

I am impressed with your ratiocinations. Would definitely keep a check here.

Help us! We need people to comment on their personal experiences, it can be done anonymously. This unqualified producer is a scam artist on all levels, breaking labour laws by employing over 100 interns with no management and is embarrassing our city. This is not a pro or amateur situation, it's about a man that cons designers (from abroad) uses students and makes inappropriate passes at them, low production quality and pocketed sponsorship dollars. It's called a scam. And it has been overlooked for years.
On Monday this goes to the press...and on Wednesday our Mayor.

Please say something on there!
