I work quite hard as a software developer in a project in Finland and get paid.
A project of mine for my own company needed help because I just did not have time for it. I needed a script for my email server to do something about some well defined attachment of an email from my cellphone.
So I declared a written specification for an email filter that I could use in my email chain to do what I did not want or have time to do myself. I posted that to Freelancer.com and in no time time I got offerings. My price for the job was between €30 - €250 EUR. The offers I received were priced as high as €277 but I accepted the highest as it seemed to be good.
The project finalised in no time and no time at all. I was happy and paid. I received a feedback on freelancer.com that the programmer is happy too, and looking towards co-operation in future again.
Finnish unemployed living on social support
I offered work at €30 per hour for an unemployed and not qualified to do anything on IT. Just driving car and other simple tasks for 10 hours in month. He refused it, because his social support would be denied because of that earning. That's "sosiaalituki" aka social support.
It is not good to get workers for small tasks, outside the freelancers. (comments welcome!)
I need to find out and learn how this kind of a business really works. Do all legal issues get resolved, as I do not work for dark markets.
If it really is legal, it is a really good option for tasks like this.
