I think there is also another potential issue here, one that we see in arts fields – if young scientists who can afford to do so (which I can only think must mean that they have someone else funding their costs of living, are healthy, and probably not carers) start agreeing not only to work for less than minimum wage, but to do so while doing *both* their science *and* the work of finding the money for science ... then why would any organisation bother to pay actual salaries of scientists, grants officers, or in fact HR personnel? IR history might call this a form of scab labour.
