With youth unemployment at record rates and well above our countries average, internships do nothing but benefit the “employer” with having this age group, basically, working for free.
Youth under the age of 24 have an unemployment rate at 16.5. That is more than double the rate of 6.3 for the over 25’s.
If, after spending thousands of dollars in post secondary education, why is so much experience still needed in order to receive a pay cheque?
So please, tell me again, why not EARN while you learn?????
