Class action demands pay for Huffington Post bloggers

by Walter Olson on April 13, 2011

The site generally promised to pay nothing to its bloggers, and has lived up to that promise. [Romenesko/Washington Post, Radley Balko, Atlantic Wire, Coyote (FLSA is a more unreasonable law than you may assume), Max Kennerly ("unjust enrichment" theories not going anywhere), Volokh (next: suits on behalf of unpaid commenters), Lawrence Cunningham ("close to zero" chance of suit prevailing); & followup (with Jack Shafer's views)]

As much as this suit and the theory behind it is all garbage, I must say “It couldn’t happen to a nicer person.” :D

(Now where’s my money?)

Based on the times I read the HuffPo, I would have to say that those who wrote for nothing were overpaid.

Walter,
I currently receive nothing as a commenter here. I demand triple the pay!

As I comment even less frequently than Kimsch does, that makes my comments more rare and hence more valuable………..
