BRIAN: Can’t get a job
without experience. Can’t get a job without experience. JASON: Muahahahaha! NARRATOR: He thought his internship
would be the summer of a lifetime… TERESA: So your workday
starts at eleven, we have lager on draught, free massages every Wednesday, and— oh, look who it is! Meet our founder and CEO Jason. JASON: I see something
very, very special in what you’re doing, Brian. Let’s get to work! NARRATOR: He thought he’d learn
new skills in his desired profession… BRIAN: No, Mom,
I haven’t actually been assigned anything related to marketing yet, but it’s good though! Yeah, I’m learning! WHISPERS: Printer’s jammed again—
Itemize these receipts— There’s a rat in the bathroom— NARRATOR: He thought he’d gain
valuable workplace experience… JASON: Brian! Can you run out
and get us some coffee? WHISPERS: Grande— Decaff— Single-origin— Of course we’re not going to pay you. NARRATOR: He thought
it’d be worth the sacrifice… BRIAN: Don’t worry about me, Mom,
everything’s going great. NARRATOR: …but he was wrong. BRIAN: Why?? Hello? Hello? I got the coffee orders you texted. Where is everyone? JASON: I fired them all. You’re my inspiration, Brian. Unpaid internships are the key
to the new economy. But we’re not pushing it far enough. We need paid internships. BRIAN: Oh, you want to pay me? JASON: No.
My vision is that people are actually going
to pay for the opportunity to intern. BRIAN: Why would anyone do that? JASON: For the experience! Just imagine it: a company that sells valuable work experience! We don’t even have to produce anything! BRIAN: You’re crazy!
JASON: Am I?! Am I, Brian?! Just take a look outside,
it’s beautiful! INTERNS: Experience— Coffee— Coffee— NARRATOR: Because no matter
how hard you work or how qualified you are… INTERNS: We went to Brown!
JASON: You need opportunity! NARRATOR: …this summer…
JASON: You need connections! NARRATOR: …you will be… INTERN: I know they’re going to hire me! BRIAN: This can’t be legal!
