Just started Amazon Turk and I feel this type of work is a sign of the times that standard of living is going down if I'm more temporary than a temp at a day job. What do you think? A lot of these jobs want you to work for 5 cents an hour it seems. Or zero pay after finding out it's bogus or the link doesn't work.

If people had some pride in their skills and stuck to accepting jobs that pay what they consider their time is worth, these crassly exploitative outfits would fold rapidly.
I admit that when I first went freelance, I took the odd job at half or even less my usual rate. However, I soon realised that not only was I losing money by doing so, but I was also ending up working for rude and unprofessional people.
Now I turn down people regularly, because they expect me to discount my rates. The only effect this has had is that I have lost clients, who otherwise treat their contractors like s__t, and am left with good clients who value me as a professional and treat me accordingly.
Well, trying it out past few days because before the Hubpage view crash of 12.2012 - my Hubpage earnings have gone down 95%. I went from making $15/month to $1.75/month. That's sad. Even with associatedcontent (now yahoo) which I haven't written anything down since being at hubpages (2 years) I am still getting $3-4/month.
So I know it's not Google Panda - it Hubpages itself that is the problem. Going to try Elance and some other places since no longer writing for Hubpages any more - other than to go over old hubs and clean them up.
Well, instead of selling yourself so cheap to MT, why not try something like WebAnswers. I answer a couple of questions there a few times a week and am currently making 2-3 times as much in Adsense as I make with HP Earnings + Adsense for 21 hubs.
I only pick questions that take less than 5 minutes to answer and deal with them when my brain starts frying from my real work. It helps to keep my Adsense account ticking over while not taking up any real time at all. Heck, I spend more of my breaks on the forum here than I do on WA!
Gotta agree with this - I am barely active on Webanswers at the moment (and haven't been for over a year) - but with the portfolio I have built up I still earn $40 - $50 a month there....
Thanks! I will try webanswers!!!! I've only been on AT since 1.12.13
Today I averaged $5.14/hr on AmazonTurk because I had one rejected. Best day yet $9.20
