A lot of the types of "internships" you guys are talking about are now considered illegal in the US.

The US Dept. of Labor is cracking down. Check out their website.
You cannot legally get people to clean toilets anymore for their "internship."
(unless cleaning toilets is your company's trade)

Of course, consenting adults can make whatever backroom "unpaid employment" agreements they want with each other, but it can no longer legally be called an "internship"
