Did you not know the scope of work when you accepted the contract at
$30? When I'm given requirements that are clearly more than the rate is
worth, I say so up front. (I have been known to laugh.) I may get more
money out of them, or I may not get the work, but that's fine.

I dunno. I don't feel the need to ask, since I assume they're charging
at least half again as much as I'm getting. It's hardly deceitful.
