The Olsen twins’ debacle may have made free internships a thing of the past

Celebrities and fans go together like peanut butter and jelly. And in the age of the intern it’s no surprise that even the wealthiest entrepreneurs are taking advantage of this massive pool of free labor. However, it may not last.

Earlier this month, actresses and fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen settled a lawsuit by agreeing to pay $140,000 to 185 interns. According to court documents, the Olsen twins will pay out $530 to each of the 185 former interns who were part of a class action against their parent company Dualstar Entertainment. They will also cover an additional $41,950 for the opposing side’s legal fees.
