Hazel Blears attempt to ban the advertising of unpaid internships. In the private sector unpaid interns are illegal. However, there is very little action to enforce this law against unpaid internships. Banning the advertising of them would be a great step forward.
Unfortunately they are still legal in the charity sector, so the banning would exclude unpaid internships in this justice seeking sector!
Blears bill is a great start but more needs to be done! Join us to campaign against unpaid internships in the charity sector.
