The use and abuse of unpaid internships also come to mind.

“The use and abuse of unpaid internships also come to mind.”

I worked full-time while going to college full-time; I always thought unpaid internships were for students who were “independently wealthy” (their parents were footing their bills). I can’t believe in this day and age (and I felt this way years ago) that holding out the possibility of a job would motivate someone to work for free (though I understand that now older workers are doing it to avoid resume gaps - which is sad but practical).
