Are interns exploited?
It's not just MP's interns!
I'm doing an internship because otherwise I'd be doing nothing, so it's good from that point of view.
a recruitment agency thinks I could get £10/hour. Right now i'd take minimum wage for a job.
Another agency has offered me an interview to be a recruitment consultant on £20k per year plus bonuses of nearly another £15k. But i wouldn't get it coz i don't want it.
Maybe that's me being greedy, because I don't want that job and i'm not really in a position to refuse.
But my point is that in the face of this i'm actually working on £2/day travel expenses.
