LOL, are you asking this because $35+/hour for techwriting seems high to you?
Here in L.A., I'm getting almost that now just for doing (editing and
robohelping, not writing <dammit>) banking policies and procedures--nothing even
remotely technical, except for the specific jargon of mortgage banking. So
actually, for what they're requiring, $35/hour seems a bit low to me. Of
course, rates have been in decline.

Living in Los Angeles is that expensive, yes. Can't speak for Seattle, but I
wouldn't be surprised.
