Big Tree Capital Partners, LCC (“Big Tree”), unfortunately we have put you on our Wall of Shame. Someone from your organization posted an advertisement for an unpaid internship that we think is both illegal and unethical.
The unpaid internship advertised is 4 months full-time for a privately held company and requires strong business skills – “MBA preferred.” Although we commend the employer for offering “mentorship” and “experience,” the law in Ontario requires them to also provide employees with minimum wage.
Big Tree, can you find the funds to pay your intern Ontario’s minimum wage ($11 per hour). If the intern works 40 hours per week for 4 months, it will only cost you $7,040.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
