As I said it can vary depending on many factors. OP said he had projects coming up. What sort? What skills do they require? How much experience and talent does the junior have? I know seniors who i'd be reluctant to pay $40 an hour and others i'd happily pay triple that.

@Dan events like this cost a ton to put on. I would hate to think what the running costs of a multiple day event like CSSConf would be.
I have absolutely no doubt that the prices are a direct reflection of this.

I do love what I do, wouldn't do it otherwise!
I'm at the point though where my current job is starting to get me down so I've already made plans to move on and head back to Aus.
I feel your pain though @DAN – can be super frustrating working with people who clearly don't care.
@ADAMDESIGNS – I don't mind annual report formatting – good formatting can be make such a difference to the end outcome

@looney I really like your first point. I always do indeed try their suggestion for a font, colour etc, and explain to them why my suggestion may be a better alternative. It works sometimes!
::Very important to work out what type of client you're dealing with before doing any work. I avoid the over controlling types and those with unrealistic expectations.::
@dan ..unrealistic expectations.. one of the most frustrating things about being a designer responding to a client's wishes
