I find this saying an interesting one. I’ve done plenty (and still sometimes do) of talks,etc. for free, and others have done similar for me … the return is not ALWAYS financial, but can lead to reputation building which can lead to future work, or just a feeling of buzz for helping someone.

Where possible, however, it’s important to recognise that the ‘worker is worth his hire‘, and ethically to pay where possible…

This thought was triggered by reading an article in @timeshigered on headhunters asking academics to fill in on information (and TV shows will do this with academics also).
