Beggar Gives Video Editor A 45-Minute Deadline, Claims Paying €20 For Their Work Is ‘Exploitation’

The famed sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison said society undervalues creative work because of the economics of scale: there are too many writers (but the same applies to many more professions) who don’t believe they should be paid every time they do something. Companies and clients know this and get used to getting work from people for next to nothing. So when someone wise actually asks for their true worth, they are compared to and turned away for those who are too scared, too naive, or too inexperienced to demand better pay.

Just a few days ago, video editor and Reddit user u/nitiddesigns got to experience this first-hand. An opportunistic lady messaged them about a clip that needed polishing and gave just a 45-minute deadline, but when she heard it would cost her 20 Euros (about 23 US dollars), the woman lost her mind and went on a rant, throwing words like “exploitation” in a desperate attempt to strengthen her losing case. Luckily, u/nitiddesigns kept their cool and handled the situation like a pro. But don’t just take my word for it, continue scrolling and read their exchange yourself. Trust me, there are plenty of juicy details I haven’t even mentioned!
