I see this all the time, and i think it is an unethical practice, since the person is just acting as a middleman in order to gain money. Not really sure what can be done at this point though. I never apply to these jobs as an effect means of boycotting the practice.

I can accept the practice if a freelancer does *some* of the work and hires someone else to do the rest of the work. But if all the work is done by someone else, then it's unethical but still legal.
