Scientology “Volunteers”


Well-known member
My recent post, Bonnie’s Sad Tale, noted the use of the term “volunteer” repeatedly to describe working as an org staff member.

I commented that this “volunteer” status is a legal sham. It is simply a way of taking advantage of the law — and that no org staff are actually “volunteers.” It’s simple to prove. If they cease to “volunteer” before completing their contract, they are given a bill for services they have taken in “exchange” for their work (a freeloader bill). That, by definition, is not a volunteer. And they also have to sign a contract. And they are promised “wages.” And they can’t pick and choose the time they come to do their volunteering or leave from it.
