So as a cycling instructor (whatever that job entails) as I said further up post suitable only for-
Retired financially well off. / those who want to do low paid work for the Samaritan good feeling factor.
The employer relies on the fact that the naive / uninformed, taker of these jobs, will be unaware of what expenses will be involved with out any benefits, will be led into subsidizing through their other income?
I do feel many people are not aware of what adhoc part time work actually means.
Actually, I think most people who do adhoc part time work are aware, and either cannot work normal full time hours, or have not been able to get better working conditions.
In my case, I needed some flexibility in how much I worked, and no possibility to work full time. Bikeability seemed much better to me than most of the alternatives, and I have to admit that I enjoyed it.
We were not financially well off, though we managed okay as long as Mr. V was working. When he lost his job, one of us had to get a job that could support a family.
TBH, the options are pretty limited for folks who cannot work a full time job, for whatever reason. Unless they have a good professional/expert reputation in something to the point that they can do consulting or something.
