I received the following comment on my value investing internship program :
"I've heard of unpaid internships, but being charged for an internship is just ridiculous. "- Anonymous
Usually, I ignore such comments but your comment is not usual, it's unusual. Hence, I thought I should reply. Let me explain my point of view on why I decided to charge for the internship:
You may have good reasons of your own why somebody shouldn't charge and I am okay with that. I feel that it's an individual's prerogative.
Had you published your comment under your name and not as anonymous, I would have applauded you publicly for raising a point which might be in other people's minds as well.
