I think it's useful to know about trends affecting our profession -- and it does seem to me that employers are generally scaling back on the pay they're willing to give us. Even here in Seattle I've seen my pay go down. And I can easily imagine being desperate enough to take a $13/hr technical editing job, if that's all I could find.
