Often times, jobs that earn through commissions are taken advantage because of the lack of standardization. A gain from a transaction is questioned because of the mentality that a sales agent do not deserve the fee they would demand for taking care of a sale. Moreover, issues of bypassing are also being faced everyday and in effect, just to secure a deal, fees get pulled really low that it comes to a point it doesn't payoff anymore the hard work an agent puts in the job.
