Hyperwork

A website that lists jobs to do and pays you at the end of the day

Why is it that job boards suck? It's always a complete job and requires a job interview.

What about a digital website which lists tasks and gives them prices. The price is what you'll be paid for completing the task.

You should be able to go to a website, find a job listing, do the job listing, get paid on the same day.

Job roles would be deconstructed and analysed to find their inner workings and the tasks split up so that anybody can do them.

       Like Amazon's mechanical turk?

       Yes but actually pays a liveable wage and isn't just Indians.

       There are lots of gig/job sites that work exactly as you described. Is there something special here other than whining about low pay, or a knock against Indians?

       //actually pays a liveable wage// Not possible, sorry. See: Thermodynamics

       //or a knock against Indians?//   

       Some countries have very low hourly rates in dollars hence outsourcing to India and China. Its just that India has a lot of english speaking software developers.

       If it lets anyone bid from anywhere you'll be competing with everyone in the world who has a computer and interest in that task. That means very low payments.

       I tried Mechanical Turk but I quit the first time a company refused to pay me for the job after I spent hours on it.

That should be: a lot of "english" speaking...

       As long as they do the needful it's all right.

       Just imagine if that would be the same for physical goods, people could buy cheap clothes and electronics from other countries leaving all US employees without a job.

       If the underlying problem is that making stuff has become too easy, does it matter which country suffers the unemployment? Surely getting nationalistic about it just moves the problem around?
pertinax, Apr 14 2021
  

       //problem is that making stuff has become too easy//   

       Then the solution must be to make it harder to make stuff.   

       Ban all automation, production lines, distribution of labour, use of external sources of energy, and synthetic materials.   

       Now you won't be out of a job for long!
pocmloc, Apr 14 2021
  

       // Surely getting nationalistic about it just moves the problem around?//   

       No. It just makes it a smaller domestic problem which doesn't require changing the world.
