As I'm not American, I suppose I can ignore the generalisations made on
racial lines in this thread. However, I resent very much the suggestion that
the vast majority of teleworking technical communicators are dishonest.

I am a freelance technical author in the UK. I charge by the hour and bill
for the hours I actually work â to do otherwise is stealing. If I don't work,
I don't get paid. And no, I am not billing for the time taken to submit this

I belong to a group of independent authors: many telework and most are far
too busy to waste time. As I have done no structured research, I cannot make
definitive statements about the percentages of people who are productive and
non-productive in office and home environments. However, I can state with
certainty that my PERSONAL experience in the UK contract market is quite
different from Andrew's in the US permanent market.
