What kind of asshole would do an internship for free? Sounds like someone scared of the real world or some rebel who wants to change the world. If you work for free this should be taken into account when assessing how much you get paid, and how you are treated in real life. If you do a paid job that I want for free, then it there is something wrong with you. I mean if you are rich, go spend your money building a primary school or helping some loser who isn't, or do something else voluntarily in your local community. Don't be a punk!
