Techwhirlers:

I saw this phenomenon in 1982 when I moved to the East Coast. Another
post complained that salaries are still low in Indiana. I found that
true of Ohio in the early 80s. The rates were much higher on both US
coasts. The same is happening now.

So, while I agree that supply and demand is at work, and I agree with
other posters about "you get what you pay for" and "writers have
suffered long enough," I think there are regional forces at work as
well.

PS: I can verify that rates are escalating on the East Coast. I
recruit and place contract technical writers in New Jersey and Metro
New York. Rates are high here for good writers.

Dave.
