I would add that I think college & universities are a main component of this scandal. The worst of it is that kids compete hard for these internships, since they are often a requirement for graduation. & we can see the evil result:
So much for a liberal education that teaches values, individual responsibility, etc.Many regulators say that violations are widespread, but that it is unusually hard to mount a major enforcement effort because interns are often afraid to file complaints. Many fear they will become known as troublemakers in their chosen field, endangering their chances with a potential future employer.
