At 2.50 Stephane Casriel says: "... last year we have launched a US only website where US based freelancers are only competing against other US based freelancers"

 

Where is that "US only website?"

I think the CEO didn't understand the difference between segregation and "new website" - or he was misquoted. 

 

If there really is a new website, it is well hidden and because of that,it can't be getting much traffic. Perhaps the new shareholders know where to find it.

The US only website is not a separate site.

 

It is option that U.S.-based clients have to post jobs available only to U.S. freelancers.

 

Presumably.

He probably meant to say "option", rather than website .... because he goes on to say "the buyers get to choose" after mentioning that. (maybe it's on the dark web somewhere Smiley Wink)

 

He's clueless about the number of baby boomers on Upwork.

 He's clueless about [insert aspect of Upwork].

 I totally disagree. Plus, Upwork's CEO is informed about whatever happens on this community.

 That information is restricted to users in the US.

Don't really see the point of a US website, I've had a fair share of potential clients who flat out tell me that my time isn't worth as much because I'm not in the US or Europe. Yay for instituionalized racism!

 

My answer is still always no when they come back asking to hire me because lower-cost writers have terrible writing skills.

 

 I don't know, I just find the whole concept of a US only website racist. People should be valued based on their skills, not their geographic location. The only time this isn't the case is if there's a need for the person to be at or near the physical location of the job and those times are pretty rare.

 

I mean, this is an online platform, the whole purpose of an online platform is that you can be anywhere.
