Do not stand for this ourage! Do not take their job without a real wage. You may be able to do the job without the benefits, but don't do it without the pay, or companies will take serious advantage of us.
And this isn't the only one of them out there! I saw another very similar on craigslist that paid 11-14 and wanted even more. Tell them to piss off until they realize they can't do the job without us and they have to pay us a fair wage. Retail stores are upping their pay to 10-15$ for stocking shelves and cashing people out. Tech jobs are getting their asses handed to them by retail!
Ok, rant over.
