Low-paying work in other arenas

It appears freelance writers aren't the only ones who have to put up with insultingly low offers for contract work: I was browsing my local Craigslist last night when I ran across a listing for a contract horse job. Follow the link to read about it on my Pony Tales Blog.

In my mind, this is even worse than many of the low-paying writing jobs you see online. At least the authors of those job ads can claim to be looking for writers from other countries. But to deliberately try to circumvent the local minimum wage when hiring for local work — now that is (or should be) criminal.
