Started working at a firm about two-three months ago, and was signed on but we didn't dicuss payments or anything just were going to fill out tax info later on. Anyways, I start off with three projects, I have to design the website from scratch taking them from basic text links and unorganized sites to fully functional power up-to-date designs. Anyways, basically I had to do research on all of them, write short sections, and do so much extra work ontop of designing. Here's the problem.-- I was paid $300 for a deposit, $50 the other night, and we dicussed $10hr possibly, and the firm is big on batering, but I told them that's not an option for me, and they agreed it's fine. It's been a long process trying to figure out what I'm getting paid and they keep beating around the bush. Bascially the firm is really small, so I'm only dealing with the owner if that puts it into perspective. Right now I'm at about 40-50 hours for each project, as I have designed over 70+ pages, and had to upload them present them etc, did not and am not going to code them though. All in all, the total hours is about 150+ hours, so that would be $1,500 for 3 full website designs.-- However, I called him tonight and asked him how much and he said he'd give me $200! I have so shocked I just said okay we'll talk about it later, what a joke. He told me he was making 4 figures on each project, and he charges $50 hr anyways. So what should I do now? He loves the designs and is outstandingly happy with them and wants to make them live, etc.-- But I don't want to sell my work for $550, when it's all said and done. What do I do now? I'm really stuck here beacuse I need $700 to pay off a few things, and would settle for that, but I feel like I'm selling myself so so short on this. So what I'm trying to say is what should I do, I'm really so confused. I know I should have signed a contract, and done terms and what no be we both rushed into it, and next project I'll get one, beacuse there's no way I'll work without one ever agian. Thanks for all the help, I'm in such a tough spot now.
