Ok, i assume i'm just an idiot in this aspect, so I'm innocent. Please don't be so stimulated and help me out upon this thing.
I tell you responsiblly that most artists doing artistic jobs here never paid over $4 per hour, even they're medium-level artists. Even I myself can't make close to $20k per month doing this small business, which is changing hands outsourced art jobs. If there's a way I can make more than that figure, I'd like to do it benevolantly and kill my evil... But in the realistic situation, it seems the project is just not available to apply globally and I can't blame anything actually.
But there's one point that I'm confused on. What if a person from some country that has a higher salary standard applys an american freelance job, which rewards $10 per hour? For example, the legal minimum salary is $15 per hour in his country. Will the American employer have to treat him specially by raising his salary to $15 per hour, which will overflow the employer's buget? And why do you think American average salary standard is so rational? Many people must think it should be higher to better their life.
Eh... the only bad luck is that the only resources that I can reach are that poor. I can't support higher payment to high-demanding artists. But do you mean people living in a place that has even lower standard of average wage than $4 per hour, for instance $460 per month, don't think my given figure appealing? And I admit the highest paid jobs I can supply is around $10 per hour, but this kind is very rare and very high demanding.
If the thing is really wrong I'm sure I'm just innocent, boohoo... If any kind person would like to hand me an outsourcing job that worth $12 per hour, I'd gladly to pay the artists here $10 per hour and they must be insanely happy, too.
In the end i'd say if the business isn't rational, then I learmed my leason and won't do it this way. But since this is a forum, please condescend to teach me more.
