Dear colleagues: I know, this is not new, but it happens again and agai; I keep reading job offers with abusive conditions at ProZ.com: use of cat tools, be willing to work at weekends, all for 0.05$,(so, less in euros); how do these agencies, middlepeople or whatever they are, get away with it? Does ProZ.com have any responsibility? I know, you don't have to take it if you don't like it, but there are regulations, price standards and all that, maybe because is in the net they do not apply? Sorry if this is a boring subject, I am just amazed that there seems to be no way out of it.

Interesting topic, yes, but discussed before Jul 26, 2004

Hi 'elere',

This topic has indeed been discussed umpty times before.

May I suggest you enter e.g. 'low rates' at http://www.proz.com/?sp=search
and have a look at the postings there?

Have a nice day,

Evert Deloof-Sys
