If he's gonna you he admits it upfront. He's looking for those who will accept scab wages when men need to feed their families.

translated into English it reads; "if you're out of work and desperate to feed yourself & family, come and let me exploit your sorry fate and take advantage of your loser arse and fullfill my greedy needs for your skills at SLAVE rates"

Spoken like a true Republican. (they loved it when Mexicans were buying into exactly that deal)

And that's part of the problem. No one is going to put in an honest day's work when they are being paid dishonest wages.

I believe people are more productive and conscientious if they get fair pay for what they do.

I'm not a big fan of taking advantage of desperate family men with mouths to feed.

It all boils down to idiocy and greed.

I agree, but it goes both ways. If you agree to work for a lesser sum than you are accustomed, then you still put in quality work.

I have no respect for a man that ties his wages to his efforts. Your work should reflect your values. Work demeans no man but many men demean work.

I agree with what you are both saying, but the fact remains.

I just gotta say, that when "scumbag" ads like this one come up on craigslist, usually they get flagged fairly quickly, or others will put up ads that pound those ads. I feel fairly certain that usually those type people end up with meth heads and the like. I've seen it many times on low paying jobs. I agree that when you treat an employ fairly, that the employee usually bends over backwards to work hard and shows up early and stays late.
