Workers On Call offers $10,000 in free freelancing work to fix the Obamacare Website.

The disaster that is the Obamacare website continues to take new and very public turns for the worse. The nation watches in bemused fascination as the slow train wreck of approaches the station in full view. Now one Bay Area start-up, Workers On Call, has a real solution and is backing it up with their own money. The founders are offering ten thousand dollars of their own money to help provide the freelancer technical support that the site so desperately needs.

Workers On Call is an on-demand freelancing marketplace. Their pool of talented freelancers are being offered to help fix the technical issues that have plagued the Obamacare site since day one.

The founders of this start-up know all too well how hard it can be to launch a new website and they are putting their money where their mouth is to help pay to get over the hump. So now the question is, will the powers that be take them up on fixing the mess or will their own team stay on their downward spiraling tail spin?

Workers On Call is packed with programmers, designers, personal assistants and almost any skill a small business would need to get work done online. Obviously their announcement today is rather tongue in cheek but as the weeks go by their deal will probably become less ironic and more prophetic.

The freelancing market has grown exponentially in the last 5 years with estimates of more than 13 million Americans working online. Nearly 50% of the freelancers on are in Canada or the states and their CEO Graham Silbermann believes “homesourcing” will be a growing trend as employers try to balance cost and quality.

Workers On Call is an on-demand freelancing marketplace with disruptively fast hiring of online help. It is a privately held start-up with offices in California and Hawaii.
