Freelancers asked to pay for being paid promptly

If true,Gawker have discovered that Time have opened up a fantastic new market: charging its freelancers for the privilege of being paid for their work in a timely fashion.

According to the US site

A tipster forwarded us an e-mail that Time Inc. freelancers got this week from JPMorgan, which administers the company's invoicing. Under the cheery subject heading "Time Inc - Accelerate payments at year end!", it outlined the company's PayMeNow program, whereby you can speed up payment of your invoice for a fee, kind of like when you get a payday loan at the check cashing place down on the corner so you can afford to buy lottery tickets for the week.
