No More Unpaid Internships

There are roughly 2 million interns in the US and about half of them are unpaid. A new Fair Pay Campaign has won a bunch of high profile victories to make organizations and companies pay their interns. Their goal is to make unpaid internships a thing of the past in the next 2-5 years! That would potentially win somewhere in the range of $1 billion per year for young workers and make internships accessible to young people from all class backgrounds – not just those who could afford to work for free.
