Internocracy have carried out some fantastic research with YouGov (polling 1,858 adults) to find out how many people know that unpaid internships break the law.
- Just 12% of managers understand that companies may be breaking the law if they offer unpaid placements
- 60% of people who have heard of internships think that companies exploit interns as a source of free labour
- only 10% of under-35s who have heard of internships know their rights when it comes to working as an unpaid intern
Internocracy will be releasing a full report with further figures on The State of Internships in the UK on March 7.
