Our “unpaid intern” is paid $42,000/year. Occasionally we take on graduate student interns, very rarely are they paid internships, and if they are paid it’s not very substantial. Last week I processed the unpaid internship paperwork for an intern we’ve had for almost a year. I’m really concerned these financial discrepancies are going to fall back on me since I’m responsible for approving the time cards and filing the interns and new-hire paperwork.
