But even as a number of nonprofit groups—ironically, including USPIRG—protested the new requirements, NPQ published a piece by labor lawyer Andy Schmidt that baldly asked “Is Exploiting Workers Key to your Nonprofit Enterprise Model?” The conversation began to work its way from “why we can’t do this” to “how can we do this?” And that “how” question in many cases must involve government funders...Read more here.
