We wonder if the company CEO also volunteered!
That's right, volunteer as in "free!"
Not cool. Especially since many salaried employees already work longer than 40 hours a week without getting paid more.

The fashion houses teamed up with charitybuzz.com to auction off month-long unpaid internships and the bidding starts at $750.
That's really a steal considering the prizes are worth an estimated $10,000.
As ridiculous as this may sound, it's for a good cause. All proceeds will benefit Rosie O'Donnell's charity, Rosie's Theatre Kids.
The auctions end on October 30th and the bids are surprisingly low. Balenciaga's leading the pack with $2350 followed by a $1000 bid for Oscar de la Renta. Valentino and M Missoni have yet to receive any bids.
How much would U pay to intern for free?!?
