How can they pay their bills?

Right on, Kate Anderson.

I've been saying this for years, and it's not just about the arts. Other professionals are asked to volunteer their skills on a regular basis.

And, as you say, with so much volunteering going on, how can those who have to make a living pay their bills?

I have nothing against volunteers helping out, but when someone is asked to volunteer to do what they do to make a living, that is a different story.
