In 2000 at the beginning of the new millennium, 12.4 % of the US population was 65 or older, and that figure is expected to jump 20 % by 2030, according to the Department of Health & Human Services.

Although most employers do not have a mandatory retirement age policy because, in general, people are living longer. U.S. Law, amendments to the Age Discrimination Enforcement Act in 1978 gave protection to workers older than 65--the standard retirement age. In many cases, as long as the worker can perform his job, that person cannot be forced out of his position.

UNPAID INTERNSHIPS: ARE THEY WORTH IT?

Submitted by ub on

As a former intern for The Washington Post, I can honestly say that it was the best first journalism work experience I could have expected, or wanted.

Therefore, as long as an unpaid internship benefits both parties and is entered into freely, are these arrangements legal, or illegal?

A former student who interned with a large publishing organization recently filed a law suit claiming that an unpaid internship was illegal citing declining opportunities for a paying job.
