Funny clients and funny contractors

There are jobs which are fixed price but the budget is $5.When reading these job posts I see massive work load.But there are contractors working on these jobs.Some contractors hourly rate is $0.1.I cannot imagine why they work for such a little amount of money.

It's depressing

Desperation and/or ignorance on one side and greed and/or ignorance on the other. By the way, I think you could probably raise your own rates a bit. I know they aren't at those ridiculous levels but $3 an hour still isn't much at all and you have feedback that suggests you know what you're doing.

Right on the Dot.

You can add Exploitation on the other side.
