If you’ve got the stomach for it, I’ve posted yet another bitter rant about newspaper work over at This Is Why I Love Minneapolis.

They offered you 36 cents a word? I just got paid for a newspaper freelance piece that amounted to about 23 cents AN HOUR.
You CAN’T be making a living wage doing this. I guess that male modeling must pay pretty darn good.
Not sure which was more surprising: the fact that you used to run the Federal Reserve Bank or that you posted you home phone number and address?
your countrymen, dog bless them all, big or small, at least those involved in the translating business, have offered me 2 centsUSD! a word for a technical translation!, which, you must admit, requires a great deal more skill than spinning a yarn, especially for one like you, with such a gift for the gab.(gift of the gab?), whatever.
The fact is that they are a tight fisted bunch of bloody c..uckers, meaning no disrespect for those who do it for the fun of it. Ya, and I said bloody. which I cannot say in prissy ProZ, the agency from Syracuse(New York, not Sicily), where, as everybody knows, to utter a profanity like bloody gets you thrown out of town.
36 cents! Wow! 7 centsUSD is the most I got out of american outsourcers!
Your best and oldest fan
I’ll take it. I’m just starting so I’ll take anything….
Frank – I think anyone that can dial 411 can easily find my address and phone number, but yes, maybe I’ll change that.
Gemma – Welcome to the Society of Over-Qualified and Under-Paid Certified Complainers. I still haven’t received your $200 dues for 2008 though, so you can’t continue to complain until we’ve cleared up that little eventuality.
Matt – I’m sure they’d be happy to hear from you. You have to live in MSP though. Or pretend to. I have a feeling a lot of those little weekend trips are written on the strength of desk research for that kind of pay.
