Sadly, there will be people who will apply for this position despite the low pay rate. They will justify it by saying "every little bit helps". The only way to force these companies to pay people what they are worth is to let these kinds of positions stay open...Why do they need a picture? I know it says you may be tutoring via video, but what difference does it make what you look like?

Very true, Tracey.

It is concerning about the need for a photo.

Exactly what I was thinking, as I read it.

Does the "minimum wage" not apply to online/phone work offered from other countries? I suppose it doesn't - wouldn't really be enforceable if the employer isn't in the jurisdiction, would it?

It makes a difference to an employer who prefers not to employ people of certain races.

Exactly so, but it never happens. I feel the same thing whenever I see people offering writing work in the "WAHM's who write" folder at insulting rates (i.e. regularly!). I don't know which is worse: the fact that they do it, or the fact that they always get applicants.
