Why is someone who can hack Github working for $30/hr on oDesk? @Egor, quit selling yourself short!

4500 USD / month is great money for 18 year old in Russia. It's 10 times usual wage.

I wouldn't say 'great' but decent and ok.


This whole tree doesn't understand the contracting business.

Hint: it's NOT 40 hours per week. It's not consistent. And there is that little thing called opportunity cost.

To be even close to $54k pa you might need to charge ~$100

Perhaps, but now he might be able to get 10 times that
