Reader’s Comment: Unpaid internships smother social mobility


In response to Andrew Tettenborn: Radical changes can make the Tories a real workers’ party, Colkitto03 wrote:

I think unpaid internships should be made illegal. In principle there is nothing wrong with them. But in practice they have just become a vehicle for the sons and daughters of the wealthy establishment elites to scoop up the ultimately lucrative careers and positions.

Especially for the elites that live in London and the home counties. In effect unpaid internships exclude poor working class and middle class kids from opportunities in the MSM, politics and the professions.
It’s one of the reasons social mobility is at an all-time low (a subject the media largely ignore).
