We wonder if the company CEO also volunteered!
That's right, volunteer as in "free!"
Not cool. Especially since many salaried employees already work longer than 40 hours a week without getting paid more.

The limited-edition pieces will include ready-to-wear items and accessories made specifically for the lifestyle site, as well as reworked Kors pieces Gwynnie picked out from the designer's past collection.
"I have always been intrigued by the idea of someone who can juggle all the balls in the air and do it with great style, make it look easy, be smart and have a sense of humor. We always said, 'Wouldn’t it be great if some time, we could do something together, in whatever way.' We started talking about the idea that when you buy something, you often don’t know that it’s going to turn out to be your favorite piece. Inevitably designers don’t make it again and, she said, 'It could drive you crazy.'"
The Oscar winner added:
"Michael’s clothes are gorgeous, staple, American classics that never go out of style. I thought it would be wonderful to reinvent some of my favorite vintage Michael Kors looks that I have kept for years, that I wear over and over."
We’re guessing the idea of keeping an item forever helps justify the high prices — this line in particular ranges from a pendant on a leather cord for $125 to a cashmere cape for $2,5000.
Who knows, if you’ve got the spare cash lying around a cape could be a great investment!
