The Guardian Hates Unpaid Internships; Has Unpaid Internship Program

The Guardian has turned complaining about unpaid internships and the exploitation of interns into a crusade, publishing close to a dozen articles on the subject over the past few years.

However, the publication doesn’t put its money where its mouth is: The paper is offers internships to prospective journalists from BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds. The program is unpaid, and students and graduates who take the Guardian up on its offer will only be able to request reimbursement for travel expenses, but not their output.
