I don't understand why people would keep doing it (and for SIX YEARS) if they weren't paid. Oh, sure, I get doing it for the love of it, but if you're promised payment and it doesn't come, then you're just being exploited. Why put up with being exploited? Haunt owners/operators should have a contract that specifies when or even if workers will be paid. It wouldn't have to be fancy--just something in writing to make clear what everyone's responsibilities are. And if these workers kept doing it, knowing they weren't going to get paid--even if the owner (wink wink) promised them--then they really have no reason to complain.
