It makes no sense to charge the provider. These jobs are at the bottom of the economic scale. It takes advantage of the people who need this work to remove their access to it unless they can afford to pay for it. These jobs used to be available directly online or in ads. It’s not like charging a search fee to someone who is going to be landing a 100k job. Charging people who may be desperate for work and need this access is unfair. It’s not even as though they only charge on a percentage basis if the person actually gets hired. Seems exploitative.

I really am not happy with the outcome of this site. I too have received messages from clients and was unable to respond to them due to the “upgrade”. If I was in the position to where I could pay a fee to view, I would. But as circumstances would have it, I am trying to find employments to make money, not Money trying to find employment. They should wave fees for people who can’t afford, even if we do go to the back of the line.

Their is a cost for messaging background upgrade etc.... I feel as though they making more money off the site by having us pay for all this stuff. Why are we paying for a site where we're looking for a job. If I had money I wouldn't have a came to the site looking for a job. I think the lower price for viewing a message from someone was $10.00 and it goes higher. Why do you have to pay to view a message?
