The trend for requiring internships to graduate has become more prevalent in the last 5 years or so. If you went to a big, awesome University, I would guess that they can get their graduates jobs pretty well without the internship requirements... smaller schools not so much.

I'm not indicting all internships, just the unpaid ones when it is a requirement to graduation (in which case the student is actually paying the school for the pleasure of working for free). Abusing unpaid interns is actually pretty easy to do, even without knowing it: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.htm[^]

Personally, I don't agree with your view that students lack intelligence, and that's why they are abused. There may not be much of a choice if they want to finish their degree, and be able to get a job to pay back the student loans. Also, I don't think when a company picks an intern they would tell them up front that it's going to be abusive, seems like something you would discover when you're actively being abused. At that point, there isn't much recourse for the student that would turn out favorably for them.
