I do most of my work for industrial control equipment (can we say
hardware? <g>). It typically pays between $30 and $50, depending on
expertise. The larger firms I know of in this area (Cleveland, OH) get
between $40 and $50, though I've heard that the firm that charges $50
sometimes goes lower. Most independents get between $30 and $40. I've
bid against a writer who also has an EE, but my client didn't feel they
were getting any value-added for the extra money and stayed with me.

I've also been underbid by $15. (!) Don't know who it was and doubt that
they're still in business.
