Should unpaid internships be banned?
Unpaid internships harm the job market globally.
Unpaid internships lower the value placed on work done by other paid interns and entry level workers.
Unpaid internships are an unfair way to replace paid workers.
Many paid or unpaid internships are never advertised and instead offered through informal networks, which encourages nepotism.
Unpaid internships make people feel undervalued which can result in them not working as hard and in some cases discourage them from working in the future.
Unpaid internships mostly benefit large corporations, because a large corporation can offer a better "stamp" on the intern's CV. That will create a vicious circle where large corporations have an unfair advantage in getting the most performant employees.
Unpaid internships increase the quality of potential job applications.
