Re "Unpaid internships" (Editorial cartoon, Sept. 22): A poor 26-year-old accepts an offer to use her time while she gains something. Later she finds she has made a poor arrangement and seeks compensation for her error.
She then finds a lawyer with equal talent who agrees to attempt a shakedown of her (former?) employer.
Quite likely both were mentally elsewhere when their classroom companions discovered everything in nature's world is required to create (produce) more than it consumes.
The cartoonist is suggesting that despite her stupidity the minimum wage would compensate others like her.
I assume the lawyer has agreed to share any award the court and the law may permit.
