Opinion: Letters of the Week - Keep the problem of unpaid interns on the front page

Well done for putting unpaid interns on the front page (PRWeek, 4 February).

Can I ask it stays on the front page until some of the industry's most high profile and profitable firms accept it is an unacceptable way to make money?

When Red has interns we pay them at a rate of £13,000 a year.

If your business needs free labour there's something wrong with your business - fact. If one of your clients was doing it, your advice would be to stop it immediately.

So, see your HR people and do the right thing.
