Mechanical Turk a Sweatshop?

Xeni Jardin at Boing Boing has dredged up this tired old headline once again, asking "Is Mechanical Turk a Sweatshop?".

The article referenced adds nothing new either.  Yes, you may only get 3 cents for doing a "job", but it's not like Amazon is holding anything over your head and making you work in poor environment.  Just the fact that you even have the ability to spend 5 seconds on something and actually make any money at all is pretty much amazing.
