The recent story of an unpaid intern filing a class action suit against CCM+E over unpaid internships is part of a growing trend in business today. Is it sour grapes from a bunch of children who expect things handed to them? Or is it a case of big business looking for unpaid labor to cover the tasks of people who've been downsized to fatten the bottomline? My knee jerk reaction was to blame the students, "Hey kid, you applied for an internship, not a job!" But after some more thought on this matter, I think a lot of blame call fall on the businesses who view interns as free labor by dangling college credit in front of them but give no structure to their internship program.
