www.inkthinkerblog.com — Chris Garrett commented yesterday on perceptions surrounding the Hollywood writers’ strike, namely that people seem to think they’re highly paid fat cats who are just being greedy.
For every freelancer that is fully booked at their top rate, there are many who are not working at all or working at a much lower hourly rate.
Even when a freelancer does earn their top rate, those good pay days have to compensate for the hours spent doing non-billable work, such as finding the next gig, administration, yada-yada. This is why I refuse to pitch, many companies use “pitching” as a way to get freelancers to work for nothing or provide free consultancy.
