For sure, Jose. 10 credits is half the smallest bundle we are forced to buy. Even some people working for a few dollars an hour have to use 6 connects. It's a tiny, almost meaningless concession by them.
Totally agree with you.
When I started on UpWork they were still giving 60 Connects every month and as a new freelancer, it is very hard to win jobs.
After they implemented the pay-per-Connects model, I`ve stopped using the platform just like many others.

They should just go back to the old 60 Connects free monthly plan if they want to keep talent on the platform.

I am greatful for everything someone gives me so thank you Upwork, keep up the good work !
