Hello BHW members, I contacted a client from one of the low paying countries following his thread here on BHW few months ago. I checked his website and it looked like he was serious. I was asked to take a test, which I passed. After the test (that took a whole day to complete), work didn't show up. I ensured that I made my rate clear (1 cent per word minimum and depending on the level of research that the work requires) and it didn't appear as a problem to him. To cut the long story short, he brought a hell of a job to me, which he tagged "a crazy job". He called it crazy because of some kind of fun that I stand to get. When I ask about the rate, he said 50 cent per hour for up to 16hours a day. I was so disappointed considering the time I have invested. In fact, it doesn't even cater for my daily feeding. I told him that he should know that I would never take such job (not as summarized as this) and he got angry and said that I'm too expensive. I know I'm far from being expensive. I just want to know if I should hang on and hope that he brings a better job someday or I should discard him. But, I know one thing ? I will never write for anybody lower than that rate even if it means to stop writing. I need your advice. Thanks.
