 Where does all (except minimal membership fees) the money come from? (The clients)

What does Upwork have WAY TOO MUCH of? (Freelancers)

Does it cost Upwork or the Marketpalce anything when freelancers leave? (No, as there are a dozen ++++  taking the place)

So no. NOTHING that could make clients go elsewhere is a good idea.


So apart from the fact that your use of caps and symbols is annoying, your statements are all wrong or incorrect.

The money comes from the clients, true, but only because there are freelancers doing the jobs.

False, upwork doesn't have too many quality contractors. In fact, I'd say there is a shrotage of quality contractors.

If a contractor with a great profile leaves then I would say there is a cost for the platform. If a client that posts jobs and never goes through the applications leaves, then the cost is zero because that client is also not generating any money. So your statement is at least incorrect.

But quality supply is greater than the demand. Where is your proof that there is a shortage of quality contractors?

Anyway, my point is that a substantially high percentaje of jobs are
created and never again visited by the Client, generating a pile of garbage
jobs that gets very difficult to sort out.

Is it true Upwork programmers make jobs so that they can earn the connect fees from the hands of desperate freelancers?

Lol, I'm trying to imagine a business that would try that, charging clients for not buying anything :-)

Hey, why not make it mandatory by law to hire you?

Are you 5 years old or something?

You would be charging the client for using the platform to post a job and then not even going through the proposals. It's a whole different thing.

Was this supposed to be a joke?

I have been here for 8 years, but thanks.

 

Seems like trying to discuss something with a couple of fan boys.
