Not everyone thinks of tech writing as a skilled trade.

Isn't the real issue here that employers think technical writing is an unskilled position? I'm sure we all remember that message from a few weeks ago where an anonymous member's boss offered the time of a admin assistant as 'support'. "After all, anyone can write". This doesn't happen in the rest of the tech industry ("We need a new dev? Get that kid in from reception - after all, it's only typing"), so why does it happen with us?
