In Focus: Protests Spread Across Brazil
Starting late last week, with several small protests denouncing a hike in public transport fares, demonstrations flared up yesterday, encompassing larger public anger at poor public services, police violence and government corruption. More than 200,000 took to the streets of Brazil’s biggest cities yesterday, voicing frustration with the billions of dollars set aside for upcoming sports events like the World Cup and the 2014 Olympics, despite crushing levels of poverty in some places, and underfunded public education, health, security and transportation. Though the majority of the protests were peaceful, a few violent demonstrations were broken up by police in Rio de Janeiro.

To compare, just 37 percent of unpaid internships led to full-time jobs. And those who received paid internships got paid more at their real jobs, too. “In each survey, paid interns exceeded their peers in job offers and starting salaries,” NACE’s executive director, Marilyn Mackes, said. source
