“Unpaid internships” sound so sexy, but what about the legal issues?

Benjamin Sutton’s Artsy article regarding “unpaid internships” makes this type of labor use in the art industry seem so sexy. Unfortunately, Sutton does a poor job of mentioning the wide and complex legal issues surrounding so-called “internships” and employment law.

Might make for a good follow-up article; one that could focus on interviews with labor and employment lawyers. Just sayin’.
