How to use "Freeloader" in context?

Although some people may view freeloaders as entitled, selfish people, freeloading can also be viewed as a survival tactic. When faced with a difficult or scarce situation, freeloaders may take advantage of the situation in order to survive.

Freeloading can be seen as a form of mutual aid, in which freeloaders help out others by providing a service or receiving a benefit that they would not normally be entitled to. For example, a freeloader may offer to do a task that they would not normally be hired to do, in order to receive the bounty that is usually associated with the task.
