The Boomer Supremacy - The Monthly

The Monthly's article "The Boomer Supremacy" looks into how the dynamics of Australian lifestyle has changed across generations - including the growing prevalence of unpaid internships, stating "In some fields [...] businesses simply cycle through internships, effectively running whole departments with no salaries."

The article goes on to reference Interns Australia's annual report which "found 86.4% of interns surveyed were not paid or were paid below minimum wage, and 78.92% reported that their internship did not lead to paid work with the same company."
