What is the minimum yearly or hourly salary you will work for? How did you determine your minimum salary?
What is the lowest hourly or yearly salary you have worked for in the past?
right now i work volunteer at a stable. i love being around horses and i love helping children with autism be able to continue taking lessons for free. if the work is meaningful and gives me what i want, that's all that matters. however if it's a job i don't like i would be more inclined to ask for at least $20 an hour. that's why i only work at jobs i can live with and have meaning for me. i don't want to sound greedy but if the job is so horrible that it depresses or stresses me at home then it's not worth being there unless i get a big salary.
IDK really, nowadays I prefer to work for myself. I think several millions per year would make it for me, though
lol, i'm having such a hard time finding decent shoes right now so i guess if i like em it would be ok.
I've had a few writing jobs that paid $50 an hour. I like those!
Well I work for myself so it's hard to figure. But since you almost work 24/7 when you are your own boss I'd say I'm making 6 bucks an hour right now.
if you like the work that would be great and if it's not enough money you can always find a way to supplement your income. i know my hometown has where you can get a vendors license for $25. so for that year you can have a yard sale everyday if you want and you can put anything in the sale. from electronics, furniture, clothes, kids toys, collectibles. i have a friend that sees old stands and dressers by peoples trash bins and picks them up. he restores them and sells them for almost new prices. if you don't have the time you might be able to find a partner to help you and split the money. then there's always jobs like pet sitting, baby sitting, handy man, etc.
Bill that is spot on. Being your own boss does have its perks though.
Oh I'm making plenty of money. In fact I'm making more than I ever have working for myself. I'm just saying that when you are your own boss you put many more hours into it.
Your always thinking of the next thing your going to write about, the next way to get more traffic, the next website your going to make.
You can't just clock out and empty your mind of your job, it's always there being thought of. So because you put almost all your hours into it, your per hour income is often lower than many.
I also would not change it for any other job.
It would depend on the circumstances, but if I were desperate I'd work for peanuts.
I think in this economy the decision depends a lot on your needs and obligations, and in what your willing to lose as a result of the decision.
I'd agree fully with this statement.
For me I have to consider distance, time, child care expenses, and bills associated with a family of our size. I have determined that if I were take a job in town with day hours that coorespond to school hours give or take an hour or so, the least amount I can work for and still make a marginal profit is $8/hr and that's only because I am very good at budgeting. $9/hr is prefferable.
“What is the lowest wage you will work for?”
If there was ever a situational question, this one is it.
A job 2 miles away versus one that is 50 miles away.
You are broke versus you are not broke.
It’s an awful job versus a really fun job.
Your current marginal tax rate.
I believe minimum wage is set at $7.50 an hour. If my need for money, food, clothing, and housing were not being met, I'd work for $7.50 an hour in order to squeak by. It wouldn't be the first time I'd worked for minimum wage. Well, maybe it would...my first job (that I can remember how much I was paid) paid $4.25 an hour when minimum was $3.85.

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?
