They are called employers too; aren't they? Yeah, we can make oDesk's confusing renaming of terms work for us. For my next contract, I shall demand some pyjamas upfront. With penguins on. Or possibly meerkats.

What I need to get me out of my pyjamas is not for open discussion on this or any other forum :-0
But then again, I am not a "work at home guy hanging out in pyjamas" - I manage to control myself better than that :-0
However, I do think Darren's suggestion of an upfront payment of a pair of pyjamas for all future contracts does warrant serious consideration by the powers-that-be. Definite potential here for solving the "minimum wage" and the "free test" problems - no free samples until you give me a free pair of pyjamas - must put that in my cover letter - penguins optional of course.
