Also no offense, but I have had a lot of people take advantage of my need for money by giving me work. As a matter of fact, it is happening as I type.

I am a consultant. My company finds the work, I do the work, the company takes some of the money and provides me with health care and benefits and some for profit, and I keep the rest of it. Everybody's happy.

If you think Fiverr or Uber should find work for other people out of the goodness of their hearts, that kind of a deal, IME, is not as sustainable as one where everybody makes a buck. YMMV, but most of the rest of the world's doesn't.
