I wish I wouldn't have to mention this, but I keep noticing that the average hourly rates/bids for translation jobs are dropping considerably! In my opinion, professional translation skills are worth at least $10/hour - which is actually quite inexpensive. I don't know who started the low bids, I just hope it won't be permanent (or join the fate of the data entry jobs). My hourly rate is $12-15/hour, and I won't change that - hopefully, I'm not the only one.
