New minimum hourly - Some clients are trying to play with it !

Some of Upwork clients are trying to play with the minimum hourly rate system - DON'T bid on junk jobs like that ... it will only encourage them to do it in the future ...

Just flag these jobs when u see them but how u will flag 😛 this system of upwork is.also failed untill u report to the CS about each job u see fake or spam.

Which is why I don't apply to those that specify that laughable rate.

 

And people wonder why Writers and SEO experts don't get better rates.

Ever since oDesk launched the new ($3) hourly rate, clients have been doing this. They simply use a fixed-price contract to pay freelancers. But, they can't exactly track their time properly so freelancers could potentially take advantage of the cheap-ass clients. 

This is all you need to see, to know you must just move along.
