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.

It’s one of the reasons social mobility is at an all-time low (a subject the media largely ignore).
