    It’s a sad reailty that many companies are now using such arrangement to basically get free services from college grads. Many of these youngsters are forced to accept the terms of unpaid internships because they believe this is the next step towards a fruitcul career. It’s good that you share this information so it would help college grads to know what their rights are.

    How about considering that many of the most egregious perpetrators of cost-free labor are colleges!!! Take a look at how much kids pay for college, and then consider how many graduate students are working for little if any pay, no benefits AND the schools are taking away all their ideas. Talk about a plantation mentality.
