Is Your Summer Internship Ethical?
Okay, so, Tory Johnson’s show doesn’t look like it’s trying to appeal to college students… but her guest, Bruce Weinstein aka “The Ethics Guy” (wha?), has a few practical dos and don’ts that might help put your summer internship opportunity into perspective. Or maybe you can passive-aggressively post a link to this on your Twitter account and hope the boss notices…
We’ve said it before — and I still believe that even if an employer is following the quid pro quo guidelines — there’s something unethical about making someone work for free. Minimum wage is a smalle price to pay for rock-solid ethics.
Tell us what you think: what does it take for you to work for free?
