These wages are shockingly low. Who's actually working as a programmer doing NLP and only charging $30/hour?

You'd be amazed at how much $240 a day is in developing countries. In some latin american countries $240 is the minimum wage for a month; earning $4800 per month is more than what a typical worker makes in an entire year.

$30/hour would make you part of the 1% in these countries.
