The Eyeopener, Ryerson's student newspaper, published an excellent article on internships this week as part of an ongoing series about students in the labour market; previously the paper has covered retail work, the hospitality industry and unsafe student jobs at Ryerson University. I'm quoted extensively in the article on internships and provide insight into the legal, demographic and intergenerational equity aspects surrounding this issue. I've been quite active about speaking out on internships as I think they are a concrete example of the problems that exist in the labour market for young people. I don't see the debate fading anytime soon in the face of government inaction on workplace law reform, a poor youth labour market and little enforcement of employment standards. For my previous articles on the topic of internships in Canada see: here, here and here.
