This can't be right

Postby tangelo » Thu Jan 30, 2014 9:14 pm

This is a joke right? This article seems to have several "facts" that don't seem to add up from what I've researched. Thoughts? http://everydaylife.globalpost.com/fiel ... 14724.html

I can't speak to the claims in the articles, but I've worked as a freelancer for the company that provides content for that site. Articles of that length pay about $25-$35 an hour. The assignment system means anybody qualified to write in the "everyday life" category, which is almost everyone, can pick up any article. Editors don't fact check, just copy edit. IOW, author probably knows nothing about the subject and has a huge incentive to crank out copy as fast as possible.

Confused as to what doesn't seem right about income statistics taken by the U.S. bureau of labor statistics? Seems just about exactly what you'd expect.
