The Meta-Trireme Award -

This month's Trireme Award, for the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars", is more a Meta-Trireme and it goes to UnderBidBob. Rather than relying on clients to pay derisory rates to freelances, UnderBidBob encourages freelances to manage their own oppression and to keep cutting their rates for their “jobs/projects” until clients pay them “as less as possible.” Continually cutting your rates seems not to be a very good basis for starting to "build up relationships with your clients!"
