I must be kinda dim. I never would have figured that. If they want to
cut my pay 10%, why not ask for that? If there is a 10% pay cut needed,
at least shouldn't there be a 10% work cut? Sounds like the PT thing
does not flag the lack of need for a technical writer, it suggests a way
they can cut spending and still have a technical writer around.
Obviously, some work will be left undone.

Jane...hate to say this, but IMHO, the cost cutting measure they are
for is a reduction in your pay. They want you to offer somewhere in the
vicinity of a 10% cut in your own rate.

If I was them, the offer to go PT would tell me that what you were doing
didn't justify a FT worker in the first place.
