The short answer: no on both counts.

The longer answer: As a client, I maintain a file of resumes of people I've
worked with in the past who have expressed an interest in working short term
assignments for their own convenience. If none of them are available, I'll use
one of several agencies that supply such people. I can't say for certain that
these are not recruiting their talent through bidding, but I do have an idea
what the talent I need should be getting paid, and I don't want someone who's
being so undercompensated that survival will dictate bailing in the middle of a
project because something liveable came along. I can never feel comfortable
having a project's success resting on the efforts of people who know they're
being exploited.
