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.
We have several tests running to understand what impact a minimum wage would have on the marketplace. You will not be able to hire a freelancer lower than $3/hour at this time.
The experience you've had is part of one of these tests. As this is a complex area, we expect to run these tests in the marketplace for a significant time period. However we are not currently implementing a universal minimum wage. We do apologize for the inconvenience.
Please let us know if you need further assistance.
Bad bad service...
