Please lady, 22 an hour..REALLY? For what you do? Is that what they in the ph? No way onlin*** . ph Stop trying to rip people off charging nearly 5-6 times what you should get. You're praying on victims and our reachout to clients soon to train them will soon shed light on all of this.

Hm, nothing is wrong with saying this. I suggest you read the forum rules. Charging someone 5 times what you should earn is considered....Yes, ripping people off. If you're electric company charged you 5 times the amount that would be illegal. Just because your in the .ph doesn't mean you somehow have a high cost of living and should get paid an outlandish rate.

Not sure what you're talking about. Cost of living determines salaries. No you can't change that. Yes we're about to spend a whole lot of money to make sure clients understand this - game over.

Who is paying for me to work for an American. You or Me? ...... Worldwide employee rates are not relevant unless you are paying for equipment etc. And I seriously doubt that you, Matthew, are.

Matthew As a client I assume that you are involved in producing something. I assume that you are producing something for sale, with the intent of making profit. Based on your philosophy, I have to ask. When you bring your product to market, do you intend to charge less for it when selling it to someone with a standard of living that is below yours? Will your pricing structure be based on zip code in the US for example? How are you going to prevent fraud when someone sneaks into a "poor" zip code and orders your product?

Russel, Not sure how this is relevant to salaried professions. Obviously it's not relevant or even a comparison. I ask you could send that question to Samsung, Sony, Microsoft, etc etc. Salary's are set in stone(nearly)and heavy calculated by cost of living.
