Unpaid interns creating charity elitism, says union

Union Unite and Intern Aware, the campaign for fair internships, have launched a report ‘Interns in the voluntary sector – time to end exploitation’. This asks the voluntary sector to pay all interns (at least) the minimum wage and wants entry-level jobs to the charity sector to be reintroduced.
