There sure are a lot of demands out there...
« on: July 30, 2016, 04:03:07 PM »
Have you noticed that on many of the sites where you can work on tasks there are many "demands" that far outweigh the pay that they are offering? I do realize that these are micro-tasks and it is probably not designed for a full-time income by any means, however, fairness still seems like an issue to me. Some of the employers seem very demanding and feel okay about you turning in work and doing your best even if they might reject it or not be willing to pay. And then they don't communicate with people to let them know the reason. It just seems unfair. But oh well I have had other jobs where I worked in an office and got paid hourly to be treated unfairly as well lol.

That is the sad truth about this online freelancing industry. It is so frustrating that other people would take advantage of struggling freelancers. People need to work and most would fall victim to their tactics. These companies are making a nice profit utilizing freelancers instead of paying the service of a full time employee with fringe benefits and what not.

I would hesitate to call them employers, but rather seekers as they are expecting a lot these days unrealistically. Most of these requests come form countries where that is the standard rate of pay, or someone who wishes to attract desperate people to work.

Some sites are like that too, and even if they are based in the US or UK  avoid them as exploitative.

I have come to accept that most online tasks are not necessarily proportionate to the pay offered. This is worsened by the evergrowing prescence of newbies who are willing to take any task as they learn the ropes meaning there sites will have a constant influx of workers willing to work for low pay. I suppose the best strategy should be to look for an offline engagement to compensate or stay around long enough in order to qualify for better deals and sure they exist. All is not doom and gloom.
