I don't recommend internships at places that pay less than a living wage to young people. I never did an internship myself because I couldn't afford to. If the O'Neill can't afford to pay its interns a living wage, then the theater needs to find less labor intensive ways to make theater. That goes for all theaters everywhere. And everybody, at all levels of theater making and going, needs to try to understand the real costs of making a piece of theater, and make choices accordingly.
