So how bad is it really for interns and junior bankers at investment banks that are putting limits on work hours ?
The verdict's in.
Cause of death revealed.
The father of a 21-year-old Bank of America Merrill Lynch intern who was found dead in the shower after a 72-hour shift says the British government must act to prevent a similar tragedy. The family are also said to have been upset about a stream of vitriolic online abuse from people commenting on their son's death.
The 21-year-old was found dead in his flat after working for three nights in a row. For the first time, Moritz Erhardt's parents talk about how they had feared for their son – and why the British government must prevent another such tragedy.
In search of scandal and the high life, things didn't quite work out the way this intern planned.
