> Dear hackerspaces, how do you deal with a tired staff. I'm one of them, it
> seems like we work work work, and every day there are less members, less
> people willing to give something back to the space and  we get the feeling
> that the majority just wants to take and doesn't share , wants discounts,
> and  to get  free materials but they never give anything to anyone. There
> are  people that think we are millionaires and want to take part of the cut
> any way they can.
> Here where we are from people don't trust each other, they are like
> survivors, try to get what they need and than they escape.
> And in fact, we are losing money every month. As staff we are badly paid,
> we are more sort of  volunteers, we can't get through the month with what
> we win. I work here at the space full time, than i get home and i keep
> working , I can't afford lunch anymore . We can sense that the whole staff
> is tired and in a bad mood, and the more time it passes it's worse. And I
> wish I could see more people happy with this, changing, wanting to share,
> wanting to make a community... But sometimes it feels like a illusion
> Any advice, or just share our pain hehe, we should make hackerspaces
> blues.
