Helicopters

Apparently, parents are going to the bat when it comes to assuring a rewarding internship to their masterpieces:

“parents also are calling internship directors to demand that their child be given different work, or calling the college to say they expect guarantees that their kids will land particular internships with particular companies.”

This may well be “helicopter parenting run amok” but it’s also a reminder that interns have little bargaining power themselves. A suggestion to these concerned parents: why don’t you ask bosses if their internships are legal?
