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.
STC publishes a salary survey for the US, but I'm having trouble
getting a copy of any data except the very limited (how limited? it's
just about useless) summary they sent in a regular mailing.
I'd appreciate, too.

What exactly IS acceptable pay for technical communicators?
I'd like to know this as well. I'm not asking anyone to divulge their own
salaries, but does anyone have information on typical salaries and associated
job titles for the nation? for a particular region? Anything?

reducing their pay scales (and getting away with it).
