I know this has been said many times on here but it's worth mentioning again.
These companies contact me all the time and try to get me to take jobs for under $100. I refuse every single time. If the job is under $100, it's not even worth the time for me to print the documents out, travel, spend an hr or 2, and then have to send the documents back. It's just not worth it.
If more notaries would band together and refuse to take these lowball jobs, then the companies would be forced to raise the pay.
The only reason they give out these $85, $50 and even $25 jobs (yes, I was offered a $25 job) is because somewhere, there's some poor sucker who will accept it. (not trying to insult anyone but I am saying that it's time to recognize our worth)
These companies can't function without notaries. Let's make them respect us.
