Aren't they paid less already so that more money can go to the work they do?

Why is this a poll? I'm confused

It's a poll because, as a matter of fact in most cities and counties throughout the United States, non-profit employees are paid less. In San Francisco, for example - most can't even live in the city but have to live miles away, because their pay is not adequate.

Yes. Duh - if two people are managing exactly the same businesses and one can keep it going without begging from the public or grabbing it from taxpayers.

You've obviously never run a not-for-profit organization.

Certainly not all non-profits are "begging from the public or grabbing it from taxpayers."

I volunteer for a non-profit which not only pays it's own way but contributes at least 40% of its income to another service agency and recycles a lot of goods which would probably go to the garbage dump otherwise. The paid workers (most of the workers are volunteers) work extremely hard and do a very good job of running the place. I might add that supervising a bunch of volunteers isn't always a bed or roses either.
