3.18.13 … Unpaid internships reinforce American inequality …

unpaid internships, careers, college,  US,  inequality, USA TODAY College:  

But not everyone can take that hit. Unpaid internships are not an option for students who use summer earnings to pay for their education. The situation is lose-lose for low-income students.

My first internship, unpaid, was the key to every other paid opportunity that followed.

As a result, unpaid internships give students from wealthy families a leg up on their peers. It builds their resume and sets them up for better jobs upon graduation.

According to Investopedia, unpaid internships, filled by a single socioeconomic class, hurt industry diversity and reinforce class divisions in society.
