On this episode of the UnPodcast, we talked about the issue of people working for slave wages, and how you get what you pay for on sites such as Fiverr.
We also discussed ethical issues surrounding practices such as paying for testimonials without disclosing that they are paid for, and how because of fake reviews, you have to take all reviews — whether positive or negative — with a grain of salt.
