The owner of this magazine wanted me to work for free when it first started. After I heard that, I didn't even respond to him. What a tool!

Wonder if you took the job and helped him succeed he would have shared the wealth? No way man. You did the right thing.

$12.50 an hour? Just a few years ago this would've been a 40K-50K a year job.

Correction to 3:39 post ... it was Ingram's magazine's owner who wanted work for free when first introduced, not Kansas City Magazine.
