School’s out and summer intern season is in. Meanwhile, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has lost its marbles in the latest ruling in the ongoing “Black Swan” intern lawsuit. Time for a fact check.
Each week this summer, Intern Labor Rights will be publishing a fact about internships in the form of an image designed to share on social media platforms. We’ve collected our facts by using a fine-tooth comb to pour over studies, surveys, a book, news articles and more, to glean the salient points that get at the heart of what is wrong about the current state of internships and especially unpaid internships. We promise – no intern had to wield that comb!
Keep your eyes out and share our facts. To share an image now, click here.
