Do you think unpaid internships are a good thing?


Yes I do, so long as they properly comply with employment legislation. In my office we have successfully helped dozens of people find full time employment as a direct result of their unpaid internships. 

As a result of bad publicity, most MPs no longer take on unpaid interns, but quite happily take on student work placements doing exactly the same as an unpaid intern, but justifying it as part of their course. This results in too many people not having the same opportunities as university students.
