Unpaid work is not better than no work

Employers will always look for ways to cut costs at their employees’ expense, and if increasing the long-term unemployment rate is necessary to make people desperate/fearful enough to work for free, then they’ll do it.

What’s funny, though, is seeing the standard conservative argument against minimum wage laws being applied to exploited free work: If you apply the minimum wage here, these jobs will be eliminated!
