Next Job At Home Next Job At Home - NGM Media LLC Work at Home Jobs - Advertisement for Writers, Bloggers, Editors - Pay is $1.50 per 500 word article! Boca Raton, Internet
*Consumer Comment: Yes and no
Yesterday, I got approved as a writer. You have to show proof that you have submitted articles to ezine and have been approved. They said they would hire me, I could start work this weekend. The pay for each 500 word article is $1.50. All articles are new, original articles. No copying from other sources. No scraping. After you submit your article, the copy is no longer yours. You don't get name credit. It belongs to the company. The company does not even give you their name. The person who contaced me was a "recruiter" for writers.
I have checked out other jobs for writers, they pay $15.00 - $25.00 per article, I know someone who works for the company that creates EHOW articles, that is what he gets paid. But, they require a degree in Journalism to apply for a job.
This company that I applied to is probably trying to buy cheap articles, then turn around and sell them and make a lot of money while ripping people off!!!
Perhaps I am stupid? But, I don't believe anyone can write an "original" 500 word article in under 30 minutes. That would make your hourly wage $3.00. It takes me about an hour to write one article, more if I have to do tons of research. Wow!! Minimum was is $8....something right. But, if your an "independant contractor" employers can rip you off!!
(NEXT IS THE EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM THIS WOMAN!!)
This is the copy of the name and email that I received from the "writing recruiter"

If you let us know that you are quitting working with us regardless of the circumstances or disappear from the job before 10 articles have been completed a fee of $10 will be deducted from any payment that you are owed.
