UNpaid is UNfair: 3rd Global Intern Strike
The Le Blogs news outlet which is partnered with the Swiss news outlet, la Tribune de Tribune de Genève released an article covering the recent 3rd Global Intern Strike which took place on 20 February 2019.
The article talks about the demonstration that drew in 100 interns, trainees and fellow supporters to the front of the Palais des Nations, the UN headquarters in Geneva. The entire strike is part of a global initiative to call attention upon the challenges, struggles and inequalities of unpaid internships. The strike shows solidarity to those who cannot undertake internships because they cannot afford the luxury of working for free.
The strike took place mainly in Geneva, New York, Bangkok, Montreal, Brussels and Copenhagen.
