I found this person on a marketing forum who said they'd give me a lot of weekly work.
I hear from them maybe 1-2 times a week and their clients are impossibly hard to please.
Note that rates can vary greatly depending on the project, the freelancer, and when the work was completed.

Put the onus on me to determine what was fair while knowing I desperately needed the work.
Hourly rates simply don't work unless the rate is extremely generous or the writer defines the work hours very narrowly.The rate, however, is appallingly low for the technical and skilled work performed by the freelance content editors.Freelance content editors are expected to rewrite/edit a large amount of content (often unintelligible); correspond with clients; fulfil all the requirements of the content management system; follow internal style guides; keep up with regular changes to production and process; and read at least weekly email communications outlining areas of required improvement for the freelance team. Severely understaffed and lack of training so you have to be prepared to hit the ground running/ask other staff to help out.Friendly staff and multilingual teams but the work is monotonous. Company pays freelancers a 16.40 euro/day meal allowance and pay for trains/flights to/from UK/EU and provide modest hotel in Lyon.Lots or rewriting wire copy/translating other language team stories. Shuttle is offered for early morning/late night shifts.Plus, they strip your byline, replacing with the site's owner? I know smaller companies like this can't pay as much as big titles, nor pay print rates, but there's got to be a better way.Went through three edits (the last being a minor one to look things over and answer a couple of questions).I'm relatively new to freelance writing, so I'm working for lower rates in order to get work.This client was excellent to work for though, so I'd consider working with her again in the future in a heartbeat.It can be a challenge to get onto their contributing writer's email, and get a response back.Aliyah Media said they went out of business (true) right after they accepted my story and put it on the front page of their website.
