They're looking for highly experienced crew members, to work with equipment in the $50-100k range, and offering to pay starbucks wages? Frankly if I had an Alexa, or was spending the money to rent one, I'm not sure I'd trust someone willing to work for $100/day to handle the camera unless it was someone I knew personally and well - certainly not someone I found on craigslist.
 
Did you notice the pay rates? That's the joke.

$10 an hour for a key grip? $100/day for a camera op? $300 for a MU artist for six days work? $50/day ($5/hr) and s/he still has to supply the make-up? Let's see, the camera op gets $100 for a 10 hour day; that's $10/hour. Take out gas and other expenses it's absolutely insulting.
 
I was a PA for a car commercial in Houston 3 years back and I think I got $150/day, just driving talent to location!! $100 for a camera op? You don't see anything funny about that dreadylocks?
