Meanwhile in Spain...

They claim they are treated like slaves by agencies who hire them to produce the salads and vegetables that end up on supermarket shelves in Britain.

in general that seems to be the trend of the "progressive" nations. we are so quick to point a finger at child slavery working in india, africa,etc but we are blind when it happens in our own backyard with low paying helpers. it accounts for the bad customer services we get these days... notice how the cashier, grocery boy,etc no longer smile with the services. the big named stores run the business like the telemarketing business ie all numbers faceless if you don't like it leave because we can replace you with twenty more in an hour attitude.
microstock has come to that stage too.
as someone points out to me only this week, it's the global culture
even if you are a happy worker in a family run business, the inspectors will make sure your life and family business will be miserable so you close down and let the chain stores profit with their slave market.

Except for a far left propaganda what else do you propose?
Be constructive and propose a society model that works and would make you happy. I'm very curious.

Now there is an idea why not send requests to Jon Oringer's twitter account requesting a raise?

If enough people do that maybe he'll get off his plinth long enough to do it :D

Not aggressive but just point it out to him ~ a little naming and shaming (its fashionable  8) )

Just make sure you keep anonymous. Those with power tend to abuse it when exposed to their failures by those who work for them.  8)

hahaha, we should make a campaign styled like an NGO begging for money with photos of stockers dressed in rags sleeping in the street ... i don't know maybe on Indiegogo, the medias could support us since journalists are in the same boat ?

based on history of NGO i think it would be futile other than us being wiped out like the mayans, aztecs, and other indigenous.
last night i also found out the guy playing guitar on the sidewalk actually make more money per day than many of us doing microstock. same for the mime who paints himself all white and stand there like a statue. each other, a wife comes to dump the paint bucket full of fivers into a gunny-sack.
it sure looks like at least 50 bucks per hour at least, as i did not count the coins .
my horoscope says to look for a new career... i think i found it  ;D

Meanwhile in America...

The business model of private prisons is to maximize the amount of people in America who are locked up-- not to rehabilitate or ultimately lower incarceration rates.

Meanwhile in India...

India's poor have to open a bank account so they can receive subsidies, but are sometimes asked to pay a bribe when they try.
