I'm not sure who wrote this but I'm not in agreement with this

I'm giving the writer the benefit of the doubt (that s/he's not placing
programmers above writers on the hierarchy). To address the issue of
wage, I'm aware of several techwriters on this list who are making
very good bucks. I'm also aware of programmers who are making far
less.
