According to Abee "1000 new subscribers = Kaboly salary paid" -- which, it is $1.50 a month, err, I'm sorry now it is $2 per month.

So Kaboly is making $2000 per month or $24,000 a year with no benefits?

Is this a sweat shop?

Look, I have no issue criticizing DK. But I will say this about pay. If Kaboly had a better opportunity, he would have taken it. He is not a superstar reporter. His options were limited. I don't know if his pay is really in the high 20s, but let's face it. If you are a single sport reporter without national recognition or a rabid local following, you can't expect much pay.

And I recognize DK is not the nicest guy out there in the business. And I don't condone the way he has parted ways with some ex employees. But I don't think he is underpaying anyone because if he were, no one would work for him . I like Seth a lot, and I am going to guess he is underpaid for what he can bring to DK, but he had no options out there if he wanted to stay in hockey. He could try to be a SBNation writer, but SBNation pays very very little. ESPN has already exceeded their NHL budget.

So as much as we would not want to hang out with DK, at least he is doing something about his situation in the business and everyone complaining have that opportunity to set up a rival site.
