Offering Writers Anything Below ₦2 Is Disrespectful by generalpelu(m): 2:09am On Jun 21, 2021
There's no other way to say this than the blunt way. Any outsourcer offering below ₦2 per
word is ridiculous and disrespectful.

With the current rate of hike in prices of commodities in Nigeria, employers should be thinking of how to step up their pay rate.

Writing is not a side hustle. It's a full time job. No matter how flexible it is for some freelancers, it doesn't mean they don't expend worthy and quality time to come up with good jobs.

We deserve pay rate in commensurate with jobs well done.

Writers, up your game, no one will up it for you. If some of these outsourcers know it's no business of one one naira any longer, they will adjust.

Thank you.

Well said, maybe the federal government will do something about it grin, or we will create an online association of writers, where we would enact laws governing payment, and pass it into law..Op come join me

You are very much right... Any pay less than 2 naira per word is not fair enough..

I have a group where we are a group of writers. It's not taken shape yet. But in a little way, we will help one another. Pass jobs around when we are occupied and build ourselves.

If you care to join, 08067541098, just message me.
