Stikbot Central which is owned by Zing (the toy manufacturer) in Portland Oregon is now hiring stop motion animators. The company is willing to pay well for short animations that can be added to their ever growing YouTube channel of over 700 thousand subscribers!
Alex from Zing informed me that they will pay around 400-1K a minute depending on the complexity of what is being created. From the looks of their currently posted videos - that's a nice amount. Much of the animation seems to be on 2's or even 3's. There are quite a few members of Animateclay.com that definitely could handle the work. If you are serious about potentially working in stop motion and have a completed demo reel - you may be in luck!
