Today, as usual, I got to my internship early, did everything my bosses asked. At the end of the day, I was fired after 3 weeks of working unpaid overtime because they found an applicant with more experience for the job I applied to and they wanted to cut costs. FML

You were working for free! Is the new guy playing them to work there? If not, they could've offered you the job at reduced pay. In a way good for you to not be working with idiots.. Best of luck with the job hunt mate.

Well of course they're going to hire the more experienced person. It sucks but businesses generally prefer going in that direction for valid reasons. If you really worked as hard as you say you did then I'm sure they'll have no problem putting in a good word for you wherever you apply next.

It would depend on the wording in their employment contract, however, working in an unpaid internship I would say no, OP cannot sue. When it's unpaid, the job is only for experience.
