Work 7 days a year for free? Would you do that?
Square.ca is advertising on TV telling babysitters, for example, that they can now accept credit card payment and it will ONLY cost them 2.75% of the amount charged. Do these low-wage earners understand that accepting credit card payment will mean that they will be working 1 week and 2 days without pay every year? Yet, that is what 2.75% of the charge means. I find that objectionable. If these workers were working for an employer, how would they feel if they were told that they would have to work 7 days a year without pay?
