I don't know about you, but I've not yet met an out-of-work tech writer
who would turn down a job offer because he was concerned that it might
result in some *other* tech writer (like me) being offered a lower salary
in the future.

You're right. We take the job, and when something better comes along, we take that. Companies do what they have to do to get people to do the jobs that need to be done. For some, that requires people who can and will stick around for a while, and they need to make sure that salary, benefits, and working conditions encourage people to do that. For others, warm bodies will do the job just fine, and turnover is a risk they're willing to take. In exchange, the warm bodies gain valuable experience and a chance they might not have gotten from a company that can afford to be choosier.
