Is Europe addicted to unpaid internships?

Published on

RawWho Cares

Free labour is a great way to cut budgets and save money. But unpaid internships are economic barriers that exclude the less privileged from the arts, media and politics. Amalia Illgner, a UK-based freelance writer, decided to sue her internship employer for unpaid wages. Should we be doing the same?


Our series WHO CARES? is all about (g)local debates. What's going on in Poland that no Spanish person has ever heard about? What's blowing up the internet in the Netherlands and not in France? Well, as a European magazine, we care. WHO CARES? brings you news you haven't seen on your newsfeed yet.
