Be that as it may, I decided to reply to your first comment because I didn’t think it was particularly helpful to this discussion for you to be speaking in such absolute or sarcastic terms. The truth is, there are unpaid internships out there at all levels of government inside and outside DC, and graduate students of all economic backgrounds are still taking them. Some of them are taking on more debt in order to take an unpaid internship. If the issue then is how can we make unpaid internships more economically feasible for students of limited means, then let’s have that conversation. But making blanket assumptions about “trust-fund babies” doesn’t get us anywhere.
