Whether working toward graduation or fresh out of college, experience is needed to get a good job to go along with a degree. In order to gain the necessary experience, students or new graduates pursue internship opportunities to grow their resumes. These internships can be great; however, some business owners in California may take advantage of the situation and end up with employees they do not have to pay. Employment compensation may be available to interns in such cases.
Those who work in the state of California want to be treated fairly while on the job. When that does not happen, they want to believe that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will have their backs. According to a recently published article, that does not seem to be the case.

When fired from a job, it is normal and okay to question the reason behind it.
