Re: “How Much is a Summer Worth?,” Opinion, Feb. 25
The article “How Much is a Summer Worth” really hit the nail on the head. Unpaid internships are just a form of exploiting college students for free labor. In addition, they favor students who do not need to work for money and whose parents are willing to subsidize their expenses for a summer. This is an unfair issue that is not brought up nearly enough. Anyone who works deserves at least the minimum wage and that applies to college students as well.
