Originally wrote this on spec for the Times but they 86′d it so I put it up on the Huffington Post.

“Opportunity to create a commercial webisode series for New York City’s most renowned Sports store.”
“[Assist] a Brooklyn-based visual artist/art director/blogger/tastemaker with several upcoming projects.”
“MODELING AGENCY –You will be required to do hands on work with assisting models and staff with the company.”
“Exciting lingerie company…responsibilities include: preparing packages, swatching, various paperwork, organizing design room & samples.”

What do these New York City jobs found recently on Craigslist have in common? All are for unpaid summer internships. And all are quite probably illegal under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
