“Hey, everyone criticizing UCB? I took like 6 classes for free thanks to an internship and have performed countless times without paying a dime. There are actual injustices in the world worth talking about and this isn’t one of them. The minimum wage in this country is $7.25 an hour and you want $20 for 5-10 minutes worth of dick jokes for a crowd of 30 people? Grab a tall, cold glass of perspective and drink it down already. You’re being an asshole.”
—That is Billfold pal Lindsay Katai, in her unique and excellent way, reacting to an NYT piece criticizing UCB for not paying performers.
