Class action suit filed against the Olsens. To paraphrase the main person starting the suit: “As an intern you are treated like an employee without the pay.” Am I taking crazy pills but that is what the internship is based around. Getting practical work experience in a work environment without pay!!!” I won’t post it but her name is in the various articles that are circulating. Guess who is now unhireable? We are in a world of entitled, lazy people. In the article it says that the Olsen’s company also did not give the appropriate college credits. If that’s the case then they should be penalized. An intern should be given college credits if they deserve it. ( we had one intern. Stifler. Yup like the movie. Funny funny) . All the news. EPA ruined a river, devastating. Trump is an idiot, we all know that. The Kardashians broke a nail, get super glue and fix it. Now this is a good one. Lorenzo Lamas’s wife doing porn!!, OK I will read that one. Ferguson riots, sad. What else?

This year has been the least amount of work travel I have ever done and now we are seeing the fallout from that. ” My life is boring and I read to much online news.” As god as my witness, or whomever, I pledge to have more of a social life by Christmas!! Or go back on the road for work and kick some ass.

  1. Lil, I thought you got married and have more children to run the Coyote Ugly. Are you still single.

  2. Lil –

    I have no idea as to the facts and circumstances related to the Olsen’s but under the FLSA the following six things must be present for an unpaid internship.

    The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment;
    The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern;
    The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff;
    The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded;
    The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship; and
    The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.
