Upwork is a classic example of a university colleague who says they didn't study anything for the exams and you realize later on that they got an A+ when the results are out.
Well, they are just down the street from me and many of my neighbors are execs there, so I guess I could knock on a few doors with some holiday cookies and see what they have to say!
Microsoft is planning to purchase upwork platform soon. Although Microsoft one of the Giant Tech company they can do whatever they want. I don't see hope in future about upwork :'( .
