Hi! Lately I have been reviewing freelancer work platforms and I could observe that the prices offered by freelancers from countries with fractured economies are very low, much lower than the average, which makes it difficult for other programmers to compete . It's nothing new, I know but the idea of this post is to learn more about the topic.
I understand the free market and that everyone sets the price they consider fair for their work, but doesn't it end up being unfair? How do you compete with those prices? Even for the same programmers who offer those low prices.
What would be the solutions to this problem? For example, for me it would be, that the platforms establish a minimum price for technology, that is, depending on the technology there should be a minimum price to offer in this way if someone charges the minimum would be charging the fair.
For the freelancers who work on these platforms...
-What has been your experience?
-How do you compete with such low prices?
-Are there any platforms that set minimum prices?
-What would be your solution?
I'm waiting for your opinion.
Thanks for reading!
Have a nice day, coders💜
