Well, I would guess it all depends on what part of the country you're in.
I am probably behind the times on my rates. I know that my company
pays $45-60/hr (depending on whether we're paying a commission) for
experienced writers, but I haven't hired an inexperienced one. Back
in 93 in Houston there were some places that were paying only $20/hr.
for experienced writers (although the norm was $30). And I know some
experienced writers now in Houston who are only getting $35.
