Ok, I can see why certain “gigs” get flagged for removal since it’s not really a gig if you aren’t getting compensated. However, please at least quote the post that you are flagging for removal so that others make their own judgment as to whether it was fit for removal. Or at the very least, so the rest of us can scoff at the terrible post promising us great exposure, portfolio filler, and future paying work by covering their uncle’s retirement party at Outback Steakhouse.

What are you talking about? Are you a socialist? Hiring discrimination makes sense. You don’t have the right to be hired. If I hire someone, it should be up to me whom to hire, not to the government regulations or guidelines.
Again, any employer is free to offer any compensation they want, or no comp at all. It’s up to us to accept or not to accept it. We are free to complain about it loudly and scold them for that, but there should be no regulation on this, no enforcement. This should work as a free market.
