Well whaddya know, I find myself agreeing with Andrew Plato. "Fair cut" has
no meaning here because the agency is not getting a cut of your money. When
a company pays an agency $75 an hour and you get $50 of it, the client
company is paying for two things: $50 for what you produce as a tech writer
and $25 for the agency's work for finding you. It's as simple as that.
