Tune in from 12-1 PM (Eastern)

Internships have become a standard component of a college graduate’s resume. Despite their near universality and their importance for students entering the job market, the majority of internships at non-profits and in government are unpaid, putting many low- and middle-income students at a considerable disadvantage. Join the Economic Policy Institute, Demos, and Campus Progress via live webcast as they discuss the economic challenges that prevent students from taking internships and how a new public service internship proposal could help remedy this unfairness.
