    It's a book that describes exactly what you are talking about. Illegal unpaid internships are rampant in the creative field, whether your aforementioned architecture, fashion design, graphic and web design, and the like. It's ridiculous, and it's yet another indicator of severe wealth disparity that we're all facing.

    I'm only 25, but it's my life goal to start an all-expenses-paid need-based internship scholarship program in the creative fields. As a web developer and designer, I'd start with that because it's what I know best. I'd love to branch out to other creative fields I know less about.

    I also hope by the time I can feasibly do this it will no longer be a problem.
