The Pen is Mightier than the Sword!

Rate Rant

Just HAVE to share this! A month or so ago I was offered a gig to do some extensive proofreading/editing of a detailed business operations manual, some 200-250 pages. The rate the client offered was 33 CENTS PER PAGE!!! That was my joke of the week! REALLY???? What writer/editor worth their salt would work for that rate – in THIS country??? They might as well have offered my a handful of peanuts!
