This is an unacceptable response by oDesk to my concern regarding not being able to hire under $3! " Thank you for letting us know about your concerns. We are constantly testing different levers to increase the efficiency of the oDesk marketplace to ensure clients are finding the freelancers they need and freelancers are getting the jobs that they are best suited for.
