CSL Plama Donate. Donating Plasma for Money is a Cash Blood

The economy falls, joblessness rises, and CSL plasma donating (selling) is the hottest trend to make money. Sad state of affairs. Is this any different than being a prostitute? Selling your body (plasma) for money is a low blow. How about selling a few spare organs? How much money do the places pay for plasma?
Is it safe to give very often? I would feel like a real loser if I started selling CSL plasma because it is like the last resort (except maybe selling sperm).
