Bidding process against US Citizens

As a US Citizen/Contractor, I am finding it very difficult to bid against those in countries where one US dollar is worth much more than in the US. Those contractors bid for $1 - $3.00 per hour for the same job I was being paid $10.00 per hour here in the US. I understand that I will not get the same pay when doing it from home, however, the Client is also not having to pay me insurance, workman's comp, taxes, etc. The Clients seem to want those of us who use English as our native language but they just can't resist $2.00 per hour. But I am seeing more and more job applications for accurate language skills. Still, I don't see them giving the job to people for $4.00 -$6.00 per hour. They actually wanted Nurses(RN) for $7.00 per hour. They make $25 - $45.00 per hour here in the States. I just can't bring myself to apply for jobs that are clearly "All about the Money" instead of quality.
