Since there is a thread on this MB asking others to create a logo in exchange for an iPod or Apple TV, there seems to be this issue going around about spec work and "cutting oneself short." My opinion is this and then I'll let the beating begin: Is it not my choice to charge what I wish for work I do? If I charge too much, no one buys. If I charge too little, I can't operate a business properly. If someone asks me to dig a hole and I agree on the wages, why do you care how much I charge? Are you jealous because I charge less? There are millions of people working today that should be making more but they don't. Either, because they are afraid to ask, can't negotiate what they are worth, they're satisfied with what they're making, they can't let go of the job, or maybe, just maybe they do the work because they like what they do and want to see the company succeed without being greedy. Please enlighten me on this issue and why you're so upset...oh yeah no need for name calling. We're all adults, let's try to keep it that way.
