Growing seeds for seed companies?

Is anyone here growing seeds for seed companies?
This would seem to be a possible way to earn a few dollars.
I have Suzanne Ashworth's (wonderful) book 'Seed to Seed' and she says ...
--------------- Many companies can use relatively small amounts of unusual varieties. The time and labor required to produce the seeds may only result in a cash reimbursement of less than a dollar per hour. -----------------
But I wouldn't mind earning less than a dollar per hour doing something that I want to do in any case, regardless of pay or no-pay.
Comments? Experiences?
Thanks in advance! Pat

Interesting one.. Wouldn't work with the 'biggies' though Eg the likes of Ball Horticulture and Novartis (S&G). You might try for smaller specialist supplier or with rare species or cultivars etc. Thing is: with small amounts most people sell their own (look on ebay for example) or do freebie swaps etc.
That quote doesn't actually refer to seed co's specifically though or does it?

Yes, in context it's referring specifically to seed companies.
I was thinking of some of the small companies that sell heirloom seeds, such as Baker Creek or Victory Seeds. No, I wouldn't want to deal with the likes of Novartis, nor would they be interested in the quantities I could produce.
Next year, I'll practice seed saving*. I hope. And I'll contact several seed companies and see what they say.
