    only for the upper middle class and above.  It's how personnel trash weed out low income applicants and get sociopaths from higher income families that stress the importance of money and material possessions.

    Young people from single parent, low income families aren't going to be able to work for any length of time for no pay.

    Kellogg's Pop Tart factory near Muncy, Pa. had an unpaid internship advertised on CareerBuilder.com a few years ago.  You needed 2 years of experience as an unpaid intern to qualify.  What kind of horseshit is that!?!

    Unpaid internship pay less than slavery -- slavery at least paid room and board while unpaid internships pay absolutely nothing.

    EOE -- l/i/e.
