My college education included, not one, but three allegedly 'illegal' internships. Two were positive experiences that I would've repeated, one absolutely was not, and in hindsight, I may have had grounds to sue...

But my current employer has a 'no one works for free' policy, as a result, we only take on interns during the summer (I was one). Sure, we could get students working here for free all year long, but after glancing at some of these viewpoints in the NYT debate, I'm glad we don't.

(Our deadline for summer internships is just under two weeks away! I'd love to answer any questions on the experience: http://www.iwatchnews.org/about/our-organization/work-here)
Should the government get tough to protect unpaid interns, or are internships a win-win?
