ANOTHER INTERNSHIP LAWSUIT! Honestly, you would think companies would have learned by now to pay their interns OR face an unimaginable amount of lawsuits! :/ #Fashion #GMN

I really don’t understand why MAJOR multi-million or billion dollar companies do not pay their interns!! It really grinds my gears that interns are being misused as regular FT employees when in fact the law states that “The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff”! -Department Of Labor  Other media conglomerates have already faced similar class action lawsuits in the past such as NBCUniversal, Viacom, Condé Nast , CBS, Fox Broadcasting Company, and many more. Just pay your interns, even if it’s minimum; and cover their expenses so you won’t get sued all the time! Saves everyone A LOT of headaches! #EndRant
