When I did something similar, I was paid under the table, and it was less than $7 an hour. So, to say that it's what all people do is simply not true.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I don't recall ever saying that? Sorry if something was misconstrued, my rant wasn't directed at anyone here, though I was taken aback at less than half of minimum that was mentioned which sparked it. I was paid under the table as well when I was grooming, so that I fully understand. :/

The one I'm talking about who is paying $3.50/hr is not paying under the table. I still can't believe it's legal.

Too many times someone gets confused as to how many hours the "barn slave" has put in and all to often the slave winds up with more demands put on them. This is when swapping labor for board. Then in time the BOs memory becomes even more confused and somehow the barn slave owes them money. It's not in me to treat someone like that so paying weekly for time worked, by cheque, keeps things on an even keel.

I've successfully swapped board for work but I don't demand much either. Pick a couple of days a week, feed the same and cover me for a vacation or show and feed the rest of the critters when I'm gone. For that, I've swapped full board and care.
