What Do You Do?
Unpaid work is still work
I’ve been paid to be a lot of things: server, cook, barmaid, receptionist, gallery girl, accountant, data entry automaton, catering drudge, writer, editor, and curatorial assistant. The pay has never been great — or even good — but it has helped, as every dollar does. Some of it was hard, some boring, and some fun, but all of it was paid.
