can make it on $15 a day!! I just started a week ago yesterday and have also run out of work twice. This is really pathetic. I know some on here say they would never take such a low paying job (4 for editing and 6 for straight typing). Had I not been desperate, believe me I would not have either. I have to wonder what happened. I know I will get a lot of answers to that question, but why in the world are we the ones getting such lousy pay? I am seriously considering doing the national MT strike day or whatever it is called I saw on here the other day. I know if we all did it, we might make a point, but there are some who do have good jobs. I would really like to know where those jobs are. I have 16 years of experience in all specialties and I am consistently offered lower pay than when I started working at home! I would love to find a company that pays per gross line or, even better, by the hour! That way, if there is no work, we would still get that hourly pay. From the first second I heard of being paid per 65-char line, I hated the idea. I wish there was an office or hospital close by so I could apply there.
