Ban unpaid internships: If you work, you get paid.

This year has to be the year that we end unpaid internships and traineeships in Europe. These last years we have seen young people miss out on key events that were to shape their lives. What they need now as they enter the labour market is to be taken seriously. Yet employers continue to minimise their worth by making them work for free.
