TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The rule of thumb for independent vendors is that your target annual
compensation is approximately 1000 times your hourly billing rate. If she
wants to stay at her prior $44,000 level, she should get at least $44/hr. An
offer of $50 has a reasonable chance of getting her there.
I'm sure the company would rather pay $50/hr for actual work performed than
$22/hr plus benefits to a permanent full-time employee. ...RM
