How RuneScape is helping Venezuelans survive

quote [ “The first thing I did was to subscribe to r/slavelabour. I did several gigs and I made my first $100 in a month after subscribing. This helped us a lot as my parents were only making like $10/month each but after that lucky month, things didn’t go well,” he writes. ]

The title makes it sound as it's a good thing, but this is obviously rather gloomy. An interesting part is how the erosion of Venezuelan infrastructure directly affected the in-game economy of this MMORPG.
