re: Why (I think) "Cost of Living" pay for remote workers is BS. VIEW POST


The way out of this situation for remote workers is:

  • To have awareness about your real market value—this is so you know how much to charge.
  • Keep your set of skills constantly sharp—this is so you are able to charge that much.

If you need a compass on international rates, have a look at this site: Codementor - Freelance rates.

Good software engineers/developers/programmers don't have too much trouble getting a decent USD/hr rate wherever they are. Trust me.

People from past jobs have told me that finding good programmers is hard, and when companies find one, they go a long way to try not let them go.

If you are good, companies will usually offer a good raise in payment to try to convince you to stay if you are thinking about leaving them.
