Hello all:

My company is insisting that my assistant, a junior tech writer - degreed
but fresh out of college, is to be hourly and not salaried. She does
professional level work - albeit entry-level. This is strange. I have never
heard of this. I have never been hourly in any tech writing job - even at
the beginning of my tenure.

Those of you who are not contractors, are you salaried or hourly?
