I was scanning Craigslist looking for some work and saw someone looking for a web developer at $7 an hour. You gotta be kidding me. I can make more than that working at Home Depot.
If you are a developer or designer, never settle for less than what you think you deserve. If you are good, then charge it.
Someone else made a comment about this on Craigslist – here was his/her comment:
“There have been many postings lately asking for designers/coders/who knows what and offering practically minimum wage. That is despicable. I have personally found that 30 dollars is the bare minimum (I was charging that while still in school).
And anyone who is thinking of taking a job at anything less than 30 an hour (unless you have no experience and it is a very good internship), please reconsider, it hurts and cheapens our profession.”
