    Well, assuming you ordered a Big Mac EVM and upsized it to large, you were still "paid" better than those who worked for the monkey who offered $6 an hour jobs a few weeks back.

    Tough time or not, there are always people taking advantage of people just starting up. Sometimes it is a trade-off, the new start-up needs the experience...

    Hey if it makes you feel better, a free Macdonalds meal is still way better than most photographers are being paid to shoot a wedding nowadays.
