i never understood the concept of millionaires and billion dollar corps asking people to work for free
Blows the stern business model out of the water, don't it?
Howard is not gonna like this... his entire business model is built on free labor...
Who said slavery ended in 1865?. It just changed names.
He will retire before he has to pay interns.
It's a way to find people who really want the job.
There's nothing voluntary about it. The students won't get their diploma if they don't do an internship. Why do you think it's so easy to find interns to work for free? How come non-interns don't work for free for corporations?? (You can find people who volunteer, but they work for charities, not profit seeking corporations)
There goes the intern beauty pageant. Damn.
It is part of their curriculum so why should we pay them anymore than we pay other college students to do their coursework?

That's a lot of dough for fetching coffee!
Google software engineering interns take home a whopping average wage of $6,700 per month – far more than the average American, according to the salary measuring website Glassdoor.com.
And other non-engineering interns at the tech giant company rake in $5,800 monthly, according to the Web site.
Interns generally work for three-month stints, raking in roughly $20,000 -- which takes the typical American roughly two thirds of a year to earn.
"Actually, it's not that surprising that interns at a company like Google are getting paid so handsomely," said Glassdoor spokesman Scott Dobroski told CNN Money.
"The war for tech talent continues to rage on."
Interns from the firm are featured in the movie "The Internship," which hits the theaters this weekend.
The average annual wage for Americans last year was $34,053, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Get ready for there to be fewer internships.
I hate when they quote stats like that: it's intentionally misleading to cite the annual avg wage like that. The number of people making zero, and those making millions make that number wrong and useless.
That's how they get billions.
You shouldn't be allowed to do anything without getting paid and taxed for it. Thank god the government is here to protect us from our would-be slave masters.
I can only hear Nick DiPaulo's voice from the Artie roast:
"Anytime I have to get up at 4 am to work for free for a billionaire, count me fuckin' in."
After our college graduation rehearsal, several of my classmates gathered for beers to discuss our plans upon release into the real world. I'll never forget an exchange that occurred when this one chick who planned to enter the television business proudly announced, "I just want to get my foot in the door at a station, so I'll take anything they offer.. I can even work for free for the first year just to get the experience on my rÃ©sume". My buddy Joe, who was older than the rest of us and had gone back to get his degree after a frustrating career as a radio jock, nearly hit the roof. He slammed his beer down and pointed at her and screamed, "Its fucking people like you who made it impossible for people like me to earn a living doing something we liked and were good at. I hope you get hit in the head by a falling light!"
Actually, Joe had the last laugh... He's now a very successful builder.
Yikes, Joe seems wound a little tight, not sure I envy those working for him.
Huh, that's a funny line. Maybe it's his delivery that always turns me off.
