The Obama Administration, through the labor deprtment, is making unpaid internships at corporations illegal. Erick Erickson at Red State has the good here. But non-profits and paid internships are still OK.
So what does this mean?
It keeps them out of the free market system. It will invariably drive school age kids into left wing non-profits and national service organizations. But even if that is not the intention, it purposefully limits choices. It denys people the opportunity to exchange their labor for skills or knowledge that benefit the society as a whole.
How can any administration call itself Pro-American, and continue to deny students the freedom to seek their own futures? I don’t see how it can.
