Workers: how do I know I'll get paid?

For people working on the Internet, getting paid is one thing; being reassured that you'll be paid (and feeling this way even before performing the task) is another. This being said, we propose a contract system ensuring workers that they'll get paid after they finish 75% of their work in full. If they do not finish their work, their initial pay will suffer reduction.

The dichotomy of guaranteed payment and a punishment (reduced payment) is meant to empower workers and motivate them (with cash benefits) to keep producing quality work. This is also designed to help them save time from unpaid work and unexplained rejections.
