Illegal Interships: Thingamavlogs

Illegal unpaid internships are a popular idea nowadays among the youtube community.  In this situation Keith Lapinig explains that the remaining 4 members of Thingamavlogs were adamant about illegally hiring unpaid interns.  Keith also explains that they very well knew that it was illegal, but still wanted to push forward with it. He also mentioned that the members wanted to mask their illegal activity by labeling unpaid interns and "volunteers" which is still illegal. Of course Thingamavlogs denies these claims.  A similar altercation happened between musician Olivia Thai and Just Kidding Films.  You can read the article here:
