That's offending

Looking at the client's work history, they have "no Indians" and "no Asians" in the titles of three of their job posts. And the job postings contain the same threat to report applicants.

 

What utterly dreadful people. Shame on them.

I'm extra offended since I'm Indian -_- Wish I had seen the job post/link before it was removed. People are allowed to have preferences (like geographical location), but judging freelancers by their race or nationality is ridiculous.

The job is still up. So clearly, Upwork is comfortable with this sort of posting. Smiley Sad

Yeah, still up, hours and hours later.

 

Which means it's transitioning from "shame on the client" to "shame on Upwork".

 

Come on, sort it out, for god's sake. Removing the link from the forum isn't sorting it out.

If this is at all motivating, I've posted on Facebook and Twitter about this. You know, it's not a thing to be hand-waved away, and really does speak very poorly of Upwork's standards. This is blatant racism, live on your supposedly professional service.

The mind boggles at how quickly and self-righteously Upwork can remove any reference to stuff like the post in question, so that reading the whole thread thereafter becomes like a guessing game. But then to read that the original post still stands, it beggars belief that either

 

a) they aren't concerned about it really, despite assurances from the mod, and/or,

 

b) they haven't got the technical expertise to simply press a button to suspend/cooler/remove/delete the offending post.

 

So the suggestion, in non-technical terms, is to make the same quick-delete button that you use so quickly and effectively on forum posts available to quickly delete job postings. Press the button, job done - you have the technology...

 

I've given up trying to work out how it all works, or what it all means, because every day something more bizarre ot more annoying turns up.

 Stephen, the one thing you can rely on at Upwork is that clients will be pampered and freelancers will not.

Well , the post will not be changed , He/they are respectable clients to them , All they care is to wash the fourm. 

What can we expect - they are the ones paying - so they can do everything what they like. I believe Upwork (really don't know whats up in it) should design the category - where these rigid clients can post job - that will be not shown in countries like Pakistan - Sri Lanka - India - Bangladesh or what ever they like to add . Then they don't have to spill their minds .
