Writers paid less than minimum wage?
I saw this job posted on a local website. I began my career with tech companies as a marketing writer, so I’m always interested to see what has become of the profession since I studied journalism many years ago. I thought the job posting was a bit preachy to begin with, but when I saw the salary, I immediately thought, “I have to tell someone about this. They won’t believe it”. So here I am, posting about it. They pay $4 USD (FOUR US DOLLARS) per article. They must write 6 a day. $24 dollars a day. And they have the audacity to remind you that it’s a work from home position, so you save on commute time and costs! Is anyone else outraged? With their emphasis on perfection, I would have thought they could have at least proofed this posting.
