All my research into this indicates a wide range, depending on the type of
editing, the level of such, experience, and part of the country. Some sites
which may help:
This provides information from the Periodical Writers Association of Canada,
indicating a rate of $50 per hour for editors.
Interesting article describing a way to compute your rate. No specific numbers
mentioned, just philosophy.
Pretty chart which illustrates most copyediting rates between $30-39/hr.
>From a 1999 survey, however.

Basically, there's lots of room for negotiation.
