You left out the U.S. Congress, home of more millionaires (especially Democrats) than nearly any other group in America... whose interns work for free.

Coincidentally (and hilariously), National Employment Law Project (the people who created op's cheap-skate list) don't pay their interns anything either.

Yes and no. There is "unskilled" and then there is "UNSKILLED". Many jobs at those companies require some skills to be successful in the position, skills that not everyone is capable of developing.

I assume many Darden employees work on federal tipped minimum wage and that needs to be factored in for that company. That being said, we need to boycott all these companies now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Find a list with neurosurgeons and rocket scientists on it, then you may have a point. As is, you're just spouting liberal drivel. Companies pay their employees to perform tasks. Companies are not charities. You want to make a decent wage, then get a decent skill that's marketable.
