Contractors voice dismay at taskrabbit’s service fee increase — Staffing quote of the week

“I’m going to raise the hell out of my rates so that I can make close to what I was making before,” Fast Company quoted a TaskRabbit handyman as saying in a story about the San Francisco-based human cloud company recently doubling the cut it takes from many of its workers. “For us to get this money back, I feel like everybody needs to raise their rates because then there will be fewer customers willing to use TaskRabbit. I’m also going to post more on Craigslist for work and check out other apps instead of TaskRabbit.”
