According to Obama, unpaid interns are an exploited class and he wants to outlaw that opportunity. I appreciate our president’s concern, but I have two recent college graduates to care for and, thank you very much, Mr. Obama, but I’d rather I protect them than you. My Katie, for instance, finishing up her stint in the Amazon, has been invited back for next fall as a full graduate student intern. All expenses paid, but no salary. Her mother and I think that’s a great opportunity and will gladly subsidize the job so that she can build her credentials – under ObamaCare, we won’t be allowed to do so because the Messiah wants to protect her by forbidding it.
I’m sure that’s fine for Obama’s daughters – no one would dare employ them as unpaid interns and they will not have to look for work. But what could possibly be more personal than a family’s decision on a child’s career? For this we need federal oversight? I think not.
