Rev is one of biggest names in transcription—and one of the cheapest services of its kind. Gizmodo reports the company has opted to alter its pay structure with little warning for thousands of contractors on its platform. Some of those contractors are now furious at what they expect will be smaller paychecks from here on out. Launched in 2010, Rev offers customers transcriptions at the bargain-basement price of $1 per minute of audio.
