And this is what’s wrong with Forbes

“The fact is that Forbes, as a corporate communication enterprise, is now consumed by a mathematical game of just generating ‘hits,’ he writes. His base pay of $200 month worked out to less than $3 an hour for the 40 hours he spent on writing his agreed-upon four posts, Monagan says.

Clearly the writer made a mistake in this case, but the way Forbes and others do business is leading to more of this happening.
