Re: Job 50288, posted just the other day.

I just heard back from these people. They are expecting to have 40 pages of approx. 230 words each proofread each day, for $1 per page. There are 30 days of work, since the project is about 300k words.

$1 per page? $0.0043/word??

What is this world coming to?!

Hi Sandra,
there is a similar thread still hot with 50 postings

You may read it and notice that nearly everything has been said already on the subject.

Hi Gianfranco,

I know. I read that. I just felt like posting this information. On the other post you guys are talking about $0.01/word. This is worse.

(Am I just having a bad day?!)

Thanks.
Sandra

This is about rates, so I am moving it to Money Matters.
