Some of you may be familiar with the blog operated by some American archivists called "You Ought to be Ashamed" (http://eatingouryoung.wordpress.com/). This blog's main purpose is to shame those who exploit young archivists and students. It is part of an effort to educate employers about the archival profession, what archivists do, and what a fair wage is. I've recently set up my own blog to document the poor regard shown to archivists in Ireland. ( http://irelandarchivist.blogspot.com/ ). I encourage you to read these blogs, and to be active in identifying injustices in the profession.
