I saw the QOD where the guys says he worked lots of races for free.
Is there a labor lawyer on here who can tell me how a hedge fund like Competitor Group can use volunteers and wihtout having to pay them minimum wage.
If a major league baseball team tried to not pay it's ushers, people would be outraged that the multimillionaire owner who takes public subsidies is screwing over people. I assume the authorities would get involved as it would be agains the law.
Yet a billion dollar hedge fund can do it and it's fine?
Seriously, how is it legal for any road race to use volunteers if they are being run for proit?
Don't labor laws apply? But lots of road races seem to do it. Would it matter if it's for profit or non-profit?
Lawyers/race directors, please reply.
