Six figure conmpensation was the norm for writers when I was in Silicon
Valley and on the Peninsula. Haven't seen that since I moved down to SoCal.

The last time I looked, writers making less than $42/hr were classified as
non-exempt and had to receive OT pay. That was a few years ago, so I don't
know if that number is still the same or if it has been indexed.
