With free content available everywhere, aren’t we under more pressure than ever to establish a fair wage for writers in general, freelancers in particular?

If editors are feeling the need to fill more pages for their publication, does that necessitate searching for free content?

Do editors see a value in hiring a freelancer or is the temptation of free content too much to resist?

What credentials do you look for a freelancer?

Writers, what do you think is a fair wage?
