It’s the summer time, which means interns are flocking to businesses around the world. It also means that adults who should know better are being really creepy.
In the Czech Republic, the folks at the Temelin nuclear power plant wanted to democratize the intern selection process by having Facebook vote on which high school graduate looked better in a bikini. CEZ, the company that runs the plant, posted 10 pictures of potential female interns posing at one of the facility’s cooling towers. The winner will be named Bouncer of Energy, which probably loses something in the translation, but still maintains a degree of creepiness.
Naturally, the idea of choosing an intern based on their physical appearance was roundly criticized. In more woke nations like the US, we just make them work all summer for no pay.
