The interns are revolting

Being an intern is the pits.

You spend all day either re-arranging filing cabinets, answering cold calls on reception, getting the boss his chicken, bacon & avacado ciabatta or re-ordering printer toner.

As a massive treat you get bought a Friday night beer no more than once a month.

And for all your toils? You get a few quid on your Oyster card for travel expenses and very occasionally someone who is actually paid to work says something like you're a 'good kid'. You almost cry with joy.

This modern-day slavery has to stop. And leading the charge is some young American (arsehole) who is single-handedly empowering his blossoming generation of interns to say 'I'm mad as hell and I won't put up with this shit anymore.'

Check out his shitty letter to a company who had failed to reply to his email WITHIN ONE DAY. This game-changing dude is putting the system on trial.
