Deadbeat Employer of the Day: Looking for freelance writers, don’t want to pay them…

From Craigslist…

Are you great at what you do? Well, so are we!

Hi-Rise Entertainment in Florida is looking to expand its pool of writing talent. If you’re good, we want you!

If you are interested, send your resume and/or sample (preferably multiple samples) of your work (word doc, preferred) to our partner Michael at the email below:

Looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Location: FLA
  • it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
  • Compensation: no pay

Well, you know what, Hi-Rise Entertainment? You’re obviously not that good at what you do, given that you’re clearly unable to pay your “pool of writing talent”. And for “If you’re good, we want you!”, read, “If you’re a complete sucker who’s willing to work for nothing, we want to take advantage of you.”

You’ve paid for your own domain, you’ll be paying for things like electricty, accommodation and the Internet, and I’ll just bet that “our partner Michael” is getting paid too. Lucky him. But you’re expecting your writers to work for nothing. Let’s just hope that “no pay” bit was a typo…
