FROM Eric Glatt
Former Intern Eric Glatt, a former unpaid intern who worked on the 2010 Fox Searchlight movie, Black Swan, talks about suing the studio for what he calls "wage theft." Glatt and another former intern, Alex Footman, filed a successful class action lawsuit which the studio says it will appeal. In the wake of their ruling, they've started a trend.

Glatt is now getting a law degree at Georgetown University and is looking at how the federal government uses unpaid interns.
