In case you missed it, the NYSE's summer interns rang the opening bell today. Adorable, etc, etc, etc, and a good excuse for us to talk fresh meat. What's the deal with everyone's child laborers this year? If you're working at a government-owned entity, were they offered the gig at a significantly reduced rate? Are they getting actual work to do what with most of the actual employees having been fired? Would you say they're exuding less cockiness on account of "the economy" or more, since they know you no longer have a BSD with which to slap them into submission? Verbal abuse/looks/freebies-- what's changed? Is management more or less likely to be okay with MD/intern "relationships"? Let's get into this.
