In the music industry it’s common to be hired for no money. Sometimes it’s just part of trying to attract freelance work and other times it’s called an “internship”.

But if you can get a job folding clothes or running a cash register at Wal-Mart for minimum wage, aren’t you worth at least minimum wage as a professional musician or producer/engineer?
