Petition asking White House to investigate unfair labor practices against young Americans
In the current labor market, young Americans are being discriminated against. Many work for free everyday, with the promise they may be hired or the skills they gain will help them find another job. Some spend years in this situation, juggling multiple internships and part time jobs with no hope in sight. Employers have taken advantage of the Recession to “adjust” their workforce. Instead of entry-level jobs, they have armies of unpaid interns to do much of the work. Some organizations have more interns than paid employees. Young workers are unable to live up to their potential under these conditions. These Americans are not being paid for the prosperity they pump into the economy. We ask the President to investigate these practices and force change where possible.
