"Yesterday the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) called for interns working for three months or more to be paid a training wage of £2.50 an hour. It’s understandable that young people may feel hard done by working for months without pay, but the CIPD have got it very wrong if they believe paying interns would improve our economic productivity or help more young people into employment."
