After a Bank of America intern in London was found dead in his apartment this week, the internet was abuzz with frightening speculation that the 21-year-old—who was described as “popular” and “highly diligent” by his employer—had worked himself to death. Moritz Erhardt had just worked three all-night shifts at the office, according to unconfirmed reports on social media. (Bank of America has declined to comment.)
It's a terrible story, and will undoubtedly add more urgency to a growing movement against alleged abuse against interns in industries from finance to Hollywood.
