I think rates are low because people don't know they can ask for more
and writing is crap partly because of apathy and partly because of
lack of experience/knowledge in the industry or domain in which they
are working as a technical writer.

Walk the walk how? Really, if you want to talk certification, you
really need to be specific. We can generalize all day and still not
have a shred of evidence that technical writing certification does or
does not have merit.
