    Anyone else tired of people expecting you to write 500 words for $2.50? I mean come on, guys. If you can't even pay someone a decent wage then don't bother trying to hire a freelancer.

    Sure thing, I'll work for 2 dollars an hour. Waitaminute, that isn't even LEGAL. Minimum wage is like 8 dollars or so. So if you refuse to pay your workers at least minimum wage, you are breaking the law and can be reported to the Department of Labour.

    I'm not sure if this has any sarcasm in it or not, but I'll give a decent reply. Unfortunately, a lot of freelancing markets don't agree with the rate. I am a regular in Freelancer.com and people would write at a lower rate though I doubt the quality is decent.

    Once again, this is the cause of globalization. How the hell can Americans compete with people in India or China? Globalization has caused the West to turn into a 3rd world craphole. Congrats, the whole world is equal now.

    Your own business is your business if you think your worth more then your getting only charge what your happy with .

    Simple

    But if you dont get jobs or only a little becouse ppl find you to expensive your fault but your business .

    Unfortunately business in any business all get undercut but if you can prove your worth your cash by all means charge your worthiness ...

    But remember dont moan if it takes a long time to get any clients ...

    I agree. I am from a 3rd World Country but I don't think my efforts would go for less than $2.50, that's why I stay away from article writing in Freelancing, aside from data entry and photo-editing, it is one of the cheapest paid projects IMO.

    Charge what your worth, I have writers I pay 5 dollars an article which I know will give me crappy articles that I use on mediocre sites for filler, then i have a write i pay $20 for 750 words that gives me great material I dont even have to read or edit before I put it up for my anchor articles.

    If you know what your worth go out and get what your worth - Rocky

    Yeah that is very true. Data entry also pays very low. Basically these are very simple jobs that anyone can do, so Americans have to compete with 3rd worlders for the same jobs and unfortunately most employers are selfish and short sighted and dont' stop to think of the long term picture. So they hire the cheapest workers they can find, nevermind the collective detrimental effect this has on their OWN country and economy. But greed blinds them!

    So it's this kind of libertarian capitalistic "blame the victim" mentality which is why America is collapsing. Have you not stopped to consider the negative effects of globalization on YOUR OWN COUNTRY? Do you want to turn America into a 3rd world country?

    Do something else if you're not satisfied.
    What's the point of this thread? Let's all whine about how bad we have it?

    More blame the victim BS. Once again, have you never stopped to consider the long term effects of outsourcing? Do you want to turn America into a 3rd world country? Because greedy employers are DOING JUST THAT.
