The Meta-Trireme Award -
unnamed intern exploiter

This month's Trireme Award for "the worst terms since I was last chained to the oars" goes an unnamed media company where one of the over 600 former interns recently surveyed by Interns Anonymous reported that "My first internship gave me £10 a week even though it cost me £18 a day to travel in." Several interns reported expenses of £2.50 a day, while £5 a day was getting on for the more generous end of reported expenses in the survey.
