          Internships are now accepted as an essential first step into the job market. Graduates often do two or three internships, the majority are unpaid with no job on the cards when they end. Is working for nothing for six months an elitist opportunity for rich kids whose parents can fund them? Are companies abusing free labour? Should internships be regulated or should young people just wise up about what’s on offer? WORLDbytes reporters check out the view on the streets of East London.

            Jose likes soccer. He likes his car. And he loves his family, which is why he left Mexico for the United States when he was 17, started working, and now sends about 20 percent of his pay to support them in Mexico. Like many of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Jose came here for opportunities that don't exist at home. “We’re not criminals,” said Jose, which is not his real name. “We just come here to seek a better life.” Indeed, economic necessity is the reason people risk their lives to work in the United States. And contrary to rhetoric that immigrants steal American jobs and drive down wages, research shows that immigrant labor is a necessity to the U.S. economy: - The Arizona economy would shrink by $48.8 billion, or 20 percent, if all undocumented workers left the state (Immigration Policy Center, March 2011) - Immigration improves employment, productivity and income but needs adjustments that respond to the economic cycle (Migration Policy Institute, June 2010) - Hispanic immigrants contributed $9.2 billion to the North Carolina economy in 2006 and created 89,000 spinoff jobs (UNC-Chapel Hill's Kenan Flagler Business School, Jan. 2006) ++++++++++ Photography and Videography: Laura Elizabeth Pohl Multimedia Production and Additional Video: Brad Horn Additional Audio: Molly Marsh Interviews and Translation: Ivone Guillen Graphics: Hilary Kay Doran Music: Scabeater, Giorgio Boffa, Sambodhi Prem

                a video explaining the mission and ministry of Daily Work, an employment-issues-based non profit in St. Paul, Minnesota. It helps people with barriers to employment, and much of the clientèle includes people in the immigrant and refugee community in the Twin Cities. This is one of the nonprofits I worked at last year, and near the end of the year, the fantastic Executive Director and I decided to interview some clients and put together a video to show potential funders and foundations.

                    The founders of Interns Anonymous explain why they set up their campaign and website. They spill the beans on the largest survey ever done with interns and challenge the idea that a whole generation should put up with working for free. As Rosy Rickett put it “internships don’t get you jobs, jobs get you jobs.”

                      A short film I made initially for a Scottish Charity working in Disability Employment. This Ohio section, from the original film of 2001, allowed me to highlight the advances made in the United States, with regard to the placement of people with Developmental Disabilities into regular employment, (compared to Scotland). It demonstrates the inspirational work of Nick Haverkos and Dave Farmer and the achievements of some of the program participants. I have since updated it for the South West Ohio "Posipalooza' event, a gathering of disability care and service providers, in April 2011. It now also marks 50 years since John F. Kennedy instigated his mental health and disability reforms. The original project won a 'State of Ohio Public Images Award' in 2001.
