As a writer myself, I was appalled when I learned that Rachel McMahon, a 19 year old girl from Michigan, has created over 700 quizzes without being paid. Her work is one of the primary drivers to the Buzz Feed website and it is clear that Buzzfeed has made enormous amounts of money from ad revenue generated by that traffic.
While Buzzfeed champions such causes as a "Living Wage" along with women's rights issues, it failed to pay this woman for her contributions to their success. This is not only hypocritical, it's unethical.
I don't personally know this young woman but I ask you to help me stand up for her and other people that corporations like Buzzfeed take advantage of on a regular basis.
Buzzfeed should immediately pay her for her services and hire her to write future quizzes. Writing of any kind is a type of art and no artist should be asked to work for free.
