Rates were low last year and the first of this year, with many in the $25/hour range. I saw some as low as $11 per hour and the $20 to $30 range typically leaned toward the $20.

However, I am seeing a lot of jobs come along that are back up around $40 or more an hour again.

I guess they got what they paid for at those $20 rates and now they need someone good to fix it.

dot-com (and who now appear to have left both). Rates for technical writers
have fallen, yes, but as I see it, it's because there are fewer openings
even for those writers with the right chops, and the number of listings
requiring domain knowledge are an indication of what employers are really
using for resume screening.
