I think our economy needs to realize the power of writers. Most writers work off commission. I understand that every piece of work will not be helpful to a business. But i feel that it will open a bunch of jobs for people who love there line of work. Also we could inspire newcomers and bring back veterans and show our appreciation for there work. Maybe i am wrong, what do you think?
while most writers don't ' have an hourly wage' as you put it there are those such as freelancers who either write and charge per set number of words. others charge an hourly wage per assignment or even just per assignment. It all varies as why charge a set amount for an article that takes you less then 1 hour to type and if you charge (this is just example) min wage per hour for a 2000 word plus article as opposed to charging say 5.00 for every 1000 words or ,even as some do 2.50 for every 200 or so words, which would make you more money? the per word would. On larger projects many can and do use the hourly wage system. nice article however.
If you want an hourly wage for writing, you go and get a salaried writing job.
also proofreaders and journalists are mostly paid hourly if they don't work freelance

Do you track both your income from writing and how much time you put into it? If you do, do you have a minimum hourly rate that you target?
