Unpaid Jubilee stewards sleep under London Bridge6/5/2012
The best parties often end with people passed out everywhere, so looks like the Queen's Diamond Jubilee can be considered a smashing success. Dozens of job seekers in the U.K. were bused into London to work as unpaid stewards for the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's crowning, a trip that sounds excruciating even before you find out they had to sleep under London Bridge and didn't have bathroom access for 24 hours. The company hired by the government to supply the workers was unrepentant, noting that the internships were tryouts for paid Olympic gigs and were "not for the faint-hearted." That's cold. Not as cold as the wet weather for the garish spectacle, but still cold.
Is there any excuse for this?
