There is concern about use of internships in developed countries: ILO

Internship

Internships give young people a chance to gain work experience and find a job.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) says that with high rates of youth unemployment, internships have become increasingly common in developed countries.

However, the ILO points out that internships have been criticized as a source of cheap or free labour as a result of widely reported cases of their abuses.

Gianni Rosas, Coordinator of the Youth Employment Programme at the ILO tells Gail Walker that there have been concerns in several European countries about basic standards for internships.
