six for me...

Clip to ScrapBook #7

The daily rate hasn't increased in the last six years I've been doing this. In fact it was cut $5/day after the first year I started.

I've been out all last week with an illness and enjoyed shutting off the phone for the duration. I no longer feel obligated to take every call that comes my way.

I had a late morning call at 7:00am this morning for an assignment at 7:30am. Sure I could have dressed and made it but the pouring rain outside was the tipping point in letting it go.

Subbing is a "Supply and Demand" type job. The way the economy is right now there is more supply than demand and therefore no incentive to pay more than the market will support.
