No dough, no show: Why you shouldn't take a gig just for exposure
When trained musicians play solely for exposure - except in the case of charitable and/or non-profit events - it devalues the work. Moreover, it means fewer paying gigs for musicians. Ultimately, it helps create a "talent drain" - sending top tier artists to other communities where the pay and prospects are better.
