Unpaid Intern Is Ruled Not an "Employee," Not Protected From Sexual Harassment
The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York found that because Wang was an unpaid intern, not an employee, she could not bring a claim under the New York City Human Rights Law. This discrepancy’s not new: Unpaid interns aren’t covered by Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and while local laws can protect them, New York’s state and city laws do not.
Well no wonder employers fucking love unpaid internships so much. Not only do interns have no expectation of pay, but they have no expectation of basic rights either.
Is anybody really surprised that a nation built on slavery, and that profits everyday from various forms of slavery around the globe, would be hype about slave office workers too?
