In the amusingly bubble-bursting tradition of Adam Ruins Everything, the newest thing everyone was OK not thinking about until now to get punctured is the great American unpaid internship. Once, allegedly, it was a time for a young person to substitute time in a classroom for time in the field, building real-world skills and relationships. Along with former Treasury Secretary Robert Reich, Adam Conover explains how internships are now simply unpaid versions of entry-level jobs that simultaneously deprive the wageless workers of their promised education and job market edge while shutting out lower-income families that can't afford to fund their offspring for a year in the hope that they get a job at the end of it.

But hey, at least it's a line on a resumé.
