Technical writers at Oracle Corp. have been shifted from salaried to

I think that this was done, as others have suggested, to avoid legal
complications. Someone from Oracle may choose to reply.

My thought is that how you're paid is not as important as how you're
treated. If this change does not immediately affect your ability to do
your job and be satisfied doing it, then I suggest you wait to see what
happens. I always counsel a political approach; make plans and take
action that produces results.

of any tech comms people who are. Did you try contacting STC for any
