It's important to remember what a freelancer is. Traditionally, a freelancer is an expert in their field. I know,. But 10 or 15 years ago, freelance consultants / developers / contractors / writers / etc. use to make more money per hour / project than their employed counterparts, because they were more specialized in their arena They got hired to do one job and one job only. They were professional, efficient, and chances were a company could not find better. Contrary to this, employees were salaried personnel hired to do several tasks - and didn't necessarily have to be an expert at any of them.
