Well, for as much as you want to call it "silly"--you're failing to actually show where it's wrong. In typical fashion, by avoiding any semblance of actually answering direct questions. Are posters NOT an indispensable part of GC business model? Does GC NOT have legalese whenever a poster signs up detailing their voluntary participation on the site (thus preventing them from later claiming an employment relationship exists)? Do you NOT see that a user agreement is similar to an employment agreement? I mean, I shouldn't have to explain that to you--but since you have avoided answering those questions, I'm operating under the premise that you either lack the ability to answer them, or don't want to answer them because you don't want to admit the shallowness of your argument. A minimum wage increase? Here, I thought that's not what you've been arguing for this entire time. You want a "living wage" (while refusing to define what that is, exactly). Which is it?
