Unpaid Internships and Assumptions
I've heard quite a few times that graphic design interns should be paid for their work. I work for a non-profit as a design intern and I am not paid for my work. It is logical that designers should be paid for their work because, ultimately, it is work and it is deign work. Simultaneously, I justify my unpaid status at my internship site because it is a non-profit. Is this a wrong assumption on my part? Should I ask to be paid even though I know that the internship site has a very small budget?
