Media bosses break the law

Cor what a shocker!

Media companies are breaking the law by using unpaid interns to fill staff shortages.
The NUJ has been saying this for years now - good to see others backing up our view.

Guidelines are great, reports useful - now we need to see some enforcement of the law. You can be sure if it was about 'bogus' asylum seekers, benefit cheats or striking tube workers much of the media would be calling for the full force of the law to be brought to bear on those who flout the legislation. Most of them seem strangely silent on this kind of law-breaking.
