$10 an hour? I don't know about you-all, but I've lost a lot of tech writing jobs lately to illegal immigrants who don't speak a word of English working for sub-minimum wage. Giant dirty rooms full of Central American ladies sitting at 12-inch monitors. I've been thinking of buying a leaf blower for extra income.
