Let me see if I understand this. You take an unpaid internship and then sue because you were not paid. It would be hard to argue that you were duped. It is good to know that the federal government is here to prevent us from make a voluntary decision to be an unpaid intern. Yes they’ve got to protect us from ourselves. Thanks to this lawsuit there are going to be a lot less of those internships available in the future.
