Is there something wrong with this picture


Alright I really do not want to seem prejudiced or anything, but very well could come out sounding just that way.  I get sick and tired of seeing postings for freelance jobs on sites where the person is looking to pay nothing.  When I say nothing, I’m talking about 1 or less for real work.  Articles that are 200 words long, should be paid a minimum of $2, or $1 per 100 words, and that is a low amount.  Not freaking .50 or less, these companies think they are being smart by going with people from other countries to write their articles, and to post it on an English site.  Sorry but you all are getting what you paid for most of the time, a piece of shit article that makes no sense.

Not saying there are not brilliant writers all over the world, but at the rates you are hoping to pay, you are not going to get those writers to work for you.  Hell it’s a tough economy, but do you really want to rip people off and recieve a sub-par article?  Well by looking at several freelance spots I already know this is a Yes for many companies out there.

No wonder people all over the world have a problem with foreigners taking their work from them.  It takes food out of your mouth and the kids you have too.  But that doesn’t matter to most of the companies or individuals who are looking for workers to help them out.

This is not only a problem with freelance writing though, it’s happening all over the world.  Hell look at what Chase Bank did with that loan from the government after 9/11.  You know the money that was supposed to help stimulate the economy in the US, yeah that money.  They used it to build a building over in the Phillipines, where they pay such low rates to the workers it’s shocking.

But a company who is worth this much really does not care, because they increase their profit by paying around 885 dollars a year to a top level employee at this new facility.  Again the one that was paid for by American tax dollars.  Makes no sense, and it’s so much more than that.

Be sure to get ready to read America: Wych coming soon, talks about corruption and things like the above in detail!
