Thanks to odesk for their recent approach of changing the hour rate. There is no doubt that oDesk is one of the best online marketplace. So I think it's necessary to make this type of changes as soon as possible. I prefer the minimum rate should be at least $1 for the fresh candidate who hasn't got any job yet. And from the 2nd job the minimum rate should $2/$3. $3 will be much better if oDesk consider it.

I Appreciate odesk's recent approach to change hour rate but it will be minimum 2$/hr so that every one work on odesk not the person who already have a 2/3 thousand hrs....
So please odesk change it to minimum $2/hr...

I think based on the category of job the Odesk can change or fix the minimum hourly rate. How can it possible within $1 to work ? Yes, $3 is the perfect minimum rate to start any job & I also suggest & request to Odesk about the mentioned rate to fix for all.

We are constantly testing different levers to increase the efficiency of the oDesk marketplace to ensure clients are finding the freelancers they need and freelancers are getting the jobs that they are best suited for. We have several tests running to understand what impact a minimum wage would have on the marketplace. As this is a complex area, we expect to run these tests in the marketplace for a significant time period. However we are not currently implementing a universal minimum wage.
Hope this helps!
