Death of an Unpaid Intern

A 22-year-old unpaid intern in Canada died in a car accident after falling asleep at the wheel while driving home after working for 16 hours in a 24-hour time period. His family is now trying to pass new laws that would protect unpaid interns from exploitation. [Thanks to Alison for the story pointer.]
