Goodness, gracious me! I can't believe that some clients would have the audacity to pay mere $5 for 10 articles of 600 words each with the demand of it being original, copyscape passed and the list goes on.
What is happening around here? If oDesk places a threshold value on jobs, it will lose business, so it doesn't bother doing that. But the clients on this platform - are you actually that cruel as to get manpower at rates that are cheaper than nuts and candies?
While its agreeable that you come up here to minimize cost factors of hiring actual workers at the usual market rates, but don't you think its way too cruel and biased for you (if any of the contractors here have practiced this) to pay a mere $0.5 and even less for a well researched, thought out, original, unique article of more than 500 words?
Shouldn't the minimum standard rate be $1 for 100 words? I mean common, I supposedly live in an under-developed country, but even here, I get paid $3 and above for a 400 word article.
Please, enlighten me on this malpractice. Is it fair? If you really are poor and don't have the budget to hire, then why don't you do it yourself? This is nearly free work that you are asking naive writers to give. Terrible.
