Am I the only one who takes issue with this person equalling hiring freelancers to buying shoes or buying people???
The problem here, my friend, is you, and how you are treating your CONTRACTORS (Yes, that is what they are called. Not shoes!)
You have been condescending to almost everyone here. Us being freelancers doesn't mean we don't understand the BASIC business terms.
As far as your leadership and hiring skills go, I can only imagine how you treat your freelancers based on the attitude you have towards the community here.
Lastly, MNCs don't ever hire people on $3/hr. It is less than even pennies on a dollar. So, dont expect "morale", "motivation", or other BUZZ WORDS you have used here. It's one thing to pay less, but if you don't even have a basic etiquette of treating people, no one would ever want to do quality work on your project.
If the client is good and nice, people might work with motivation and quality- even if they are paid less. Sadly, that is not the case here!

I don't think that is exactly how he would put it. He may think that such a characterization of his position is twisting his words.


For what it is worth, although you may not agree with the original poster's positions on the topics discussed in this thread... his viewpoints deserve a place here in the Forum. His posts represent a clear viewpoint. I do not doubt his sincerity. I think everybody who reads this thread can learn from it, even if they don't agree with everything said here.
