A topic I’ve heard people kvetching about lately is the prevalence of unpaid internships for aspiring youngsters. The complaint is that they violate the spirit of minimum-wage laws, and drive out competition for entry-level jobs.

I’ve written about minimum-wage laws before; they seem beneficent enough, but they have a darker side, and darker origins than most people imagine.
