First of all, company must be ABSOLUTELY SURE their pay rates are in line with national standards. I recall reading remote tech writers earn $15 / hr. Hey, if the work isn’t too technical and the writer doesn’t need a secondary degree AND, say, the employee is retired and looking to fill in their vacant time AND add to the pittance Social Security gives them, then.... why not?
But if one is a mid-career tech writer, well, I know when I was at that stage AND working in a small town in the Southeast U.S. where pay is ALWAYS notoriously low, my bi-weekly paychecks were $2,348 (net, and you do the math)). So, sorry to disagree, but $30K a year is NOT anywhere near average pay for a mid level tech writer.
I think just the other day, I saw the “average” annual salary nationwide now, is like $64K -something. Where $30 K/yr is figured to be average for mid level tech writers tells me somebody whose job is to ensure company salaries match national standard, who works at this company, must either have been told that is a fact and believe whatever they were told, so they do believe it like a good little high school graduate with a job title of HR Compensation Analyst would do, if they believe the title makes the person. Or they’ve been fired a bazillion times elsewhere, or they are scared to lose what little job they have, or scared of the boss, or,,.. maybe they’re beauty queens getting perks on the side, IYKWIM. Who knows????
