The Trouble with Internships

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

With youth unemployment at 16.5 % in Canada, the ability to find work is a pressing issue for students. Traditionally, internships were a way to get a foot in the door. Are they still? In light of recent labour board complaints and lawsuits launched against employers for illegal work conditions, internships are facing a backlash in Canada and the United States. The Agenda examines what's fair in labour and work with a group including former Agenda interns.
