I think you incorrectly read his post. He did not say that 90% of the coders are unpaid; he said (paraphrasing) that it was not true that 90% of the coders were being paid. Note that he used quotes around the "90%" which would indicate that he was referring to the previous post's claim that 90% of the coders were getting paid.

I am not sure how many Mozilla developers are being paid to work on Mozilla code, but I would be very very very surprised to learn that only one out of ten was volunteering their time.
