Medium Needs To Pay Its Writers More

Writers make the platform what it is, but do not reap the benefits of our hard work

I am grateful for this community and to Medium for providing a venue for all of us to share our writing.

I have learned a lot over the past eight or so months I’ve been reading and writing here, and I plan to continue doing so, but I have concerns.

I work my tail off for my writing because I love it, but also because I want to earn a reasonable amount for my work, as do many of us here. The key word being reasonable.

Dear Medium corporation,

I enjoy this community, and I enjoy writing here. That said, people can only survive on a few dollars per day for so long before we are forced to return to work that pays the bills.

Sincerely,

Me.
